Became involved: I joined my high school weightlifting team (they do C&J and bench) because I was told it would benefit my gymnastics. Justin [Devine, coach], who was a family friend at the time, came and saw me at a meet and offered to help me train for the regional high school meet. Needless to say, I never stopped lifting after the high school meet.
