Team Expectations: I’m looking for to growing and making a family through this amazing sport. I’m looking forward to hit the best numbers I can. 

Favorite Lift: I don’t really have a favorite lift, they all are my favorite at one time or another, however, squats are my most comfortable and confident lift. 

Memorial Moment: Most memorable moment is coming back from a knee injury so soon from my meet and overcoming the odds.
