What do you love most about gymnastics? How competitive and challenging of a sport it is and the fact that I get to flip around and learn new skills.

What was the best moment of your athletic career? Coming back from an injury in my senior year of high school, competing for the first time in Barnhill and setting a personal record.

Why did you choose to come to Arkansas? When I came to visit it was a home away from home already! I loved the campus and the gymnastics facility. Having older club teammates who attended the U of A for gymnastics always came home with amazing stories that made me fall in love with Arkansas.

What’s the best thing about being a Gymback? Having a group of sisters I never had and representing the U of A.

What are your personal and team goals this season? Team goal is to make Super Six. Individual goal is to compete all around.

What are your favorite events? Floor and vault.

If you could play any other sport, what would it be? Golf, because it’s one of the things my dad and I would do for fun.

What do you like to do in your free time? Cooking, fishing and playing with my niece and nephew.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would travel around Europe and Asia.

Can you play any instruments or have any other hidden talents? My mom taught me how to play the piano and I’ve played ever since.

If someone walked into your dorm room, what’s the first thing they would notice? A ton of pictures of my niece from when she was a baby.
