I grew up in Coon Rapids, MN where I cheered all four years of high school at Coon Rapids High School, and competing at High School Nationals in 2013.

After graduating I went on to cheer at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) for four years on the Small CO-ED Cheer team and the All-Girl Cheer team from 2014-2018.

This is my second year with Woodbury High School and I am excited for many more to come! I encourage each athlete to grow within the sport as well as in their everyday lives. I want every athlete to develop confidence and an admirable work ethic in a safe atmosphere all while having fun. I strive to teach valuable lessons to every member of the WHS family that they can take with them into the next steps their future holds.
