This will be her 11th year dancing with Dance With Heart Studios in Adrian and Manchester, Michigan, and her 6th year competing with the competition team. She has gone to many competitions including the Youth American Grand Prix in Pittsburgh, PA and Indianapolis, IN and Dance Masters of Michigan Solo Title.
