Welcome to my very own website!! I'm new to this blogging thing so bare with me. I'm so excited to have this platform to share my journey to the 2018 Pyeongchang Games with friends, family, and fans.
After being away from the sport for the past 6 years I've sworn to live with no regrets and to leave it all out on the ice. I want to take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way and share it with as many people as possible. Speed skating has been a huge part of my life. I'm so grateful for the places it's taken me, the people I've met, and the person it's helped me become. The love I have for the sport of speed skating is indescribable and I want nothing more than to share this passion with the younger generation.
I have an amazing support system led by my parents. When I was 13 years old my parents uprooted our lives in Florida and moved to Salt Lake City so that I could purse my Olympic dream. They have been my biggest fans since day one and without their support I wouldn't be where I am today. As a professional athlete you are always setting goals and working towards achieving them. I want to always make it a point to take a step back and thank those that have stood by my side and pushed me to the limit so that I could achieve my hearts ambitions.
Make sure to check back in for all the ups, downs, and in-betweens of becoming an Olympian.
It's going to be a crazy ride!
