She has competed in the Youth American Grand Prix and attended summer programs with Boston Ballet and Ballet West.

Outside of dance she is the treasurer in her school's Associated Student Government class. Her goal is to attend a university dance program or conservatory and then join a contemporary ballet company after graduation.
