How did you get involved in the sport?

I got involved in weightlifting about 4 years ago. I was doing Crossfit and did a weightlifting meet and qualified for Junior nationals, where after I got invited to the Olympic training center for a camp, which started my career.

My biggest supporters have been my family, I couldn’t do this without them. Also my coach Travis Mash, I wouldn’t be where I am without him. 

What is the best part about competing?

The best part about competing is getting to chase those new PR’s down that you have been training so hard for.
