At the urging of my elementary school gym teacher, I started running in fifth grade. My introduction to track was the Colgate Women's Games and in eighth grade, I won the middle school category at 800m and I received a trophy for Most Improved. I capped my middle school running career off with winning the USATF National Junior Olympics at 800m in Sacramento, CA.

My high school running career ended abruptly due to Covid, but I was able to pivot towards college training and have a successful first collegiate indoor season!
I achieved two PRs with the second and third fastest 600m and 800m indoor times, respectively, in Penn State history; won the Big Ten conference championship at 800m; earned a second team All-American honor; and was awarded Big Ten Freshman of the 2021 Indoor Track Season.

In high school I won seven New Jersey Meet of Champions state titles at 800m and earned All-American recognition four times. I competed in the highly-selective Millrose Games, Brooks PR Invitational, New Balance Grand Prix, and Mt Sac Relays.
