As I completed my last college track meet, my heart knew my career in the heptathlon couldn’t be over, so I packed my bags and moved to Santa Barbara, California to pursue my dream of becoming an Olympian.

In just one year of training as a professional, I was able to improve my score by over 200 points, and in my first ever USA National Championships, took home the Bronze medal. Continuing to develop, I worked hard and achieved what few have had the chance to: becoming a member of Team USA. Now I take my career overseas to the United Kingdom, where I can continue to grow, learn, and find joy in all of my opportunities.

My journey has only just begun, and I invite you to come along with me on this Olympic adventure, filled with hard work, joy, and a burning desire to make my dream a reality
