Hobbies/Interests besides skating: Working out and going places with friends
Goals (off-ice only): Go to college and get a degree. I also want to be connected to the skating world doing shows or coaching.
When and how did you begin skating?: I began skating at the age of 3. I took ballet, jazz, hip hop and tap dance at a company near where I lived growing up and one of my friends that I took dance class with started Learn to Skate. My mom thought it would be fun to give it a try and I haven’t looked back since!
What is your favorite thing about skating?: I like being able to travel and meet new people. Also being able to bring joy to spectators and fans when they watch me skate and having them reach out to me about the positive parts of it!
What is your least favorite thing about skating?: Training so hard and feeling confident in yourself and not being able to deliver that same confidence in a moment that counts. Skating is 80% mental and 20% physical.
