What got you interested in gymnastics?  I always loved going…I don’t remember a time where I didn’t love being around the gym itself.

What gymnasts do you enjoy watching? There are lots of gymnasts I enjoy for different reasons.  Shawn Johnson, Simone Biles, Aliya Mustafina, Victoria Komova, Ivana Hong, all of the Chinese gymnasts. Too many to list.

Favorite event/why:  I actually enjoy them all but if I had to choose, I would have to say bars.

Favorite food:   Fresh pineapple, green and orange peppers, and BLT wraps

Hobbies:  Training my dog to do new tricks, fishing and writing.

Most memorable meet experience:  Level 7 State.

Personal goal(s):  Be purposeful and grow every practice.

Achievements: I don’t know if this counts as achievements, but I am thankful every time I cross a goal out of my book.
