Seminole County

I started training and competing with Special Olympics Florida in 2009. My first sport was swimming and since then have competed in bowling and bocce.

I also used to be an assistant coach for five years, but now I’m only a full-time athlete. Just last fall, I competed for the first time in powerlifting at the 2021 State Fall Classic and I brought home the Gold!

I am so proud of my accomplishments.
