A huge thank you goes out to my family that has been an amazing support system for me. Thanks for believing in my dreams and always helping me reach for the stars!
Thank you to the following companies and businesses that have provided me with products or services to help support me with training along my journey.
Halo Sport is designed to make your training or practice more efficient by improving your brain’s natural plasticity. The headphones that are pictured below are to be worn for 20 minutes prior and during warm up before training sessions. The primers on the headphones apply a mild electric field to the motor cortex, Halo’s Neuropriming technology induces a state of “hyperplasticity.” When someone trains in a hyperplastic state, the brain’s normal fine-tuning process occurs more rapidly meaning better results from each practice rep. I have been using Halo Sport for almost a year now and have seen improvements in my ability to focus and really work on my muscle memory leading to gains in all aspects of my sport.

It has helped with coming back from my hip surgery, getting through tough weeks of training, and with minor injuries that frequently happen. A huge thanks goes out to Dr. Diane Cridennda for providing me with treatments to help aid in my dreams and keep me healthy. Visit East Winds Acupuncture website
REST & Float Solutions
I am happy to be an ambassador for REST and Float Solutions. The practice of flotation (also called flotation therapy) is quickly gaining popularity as a primary means of rest, relaxation, and recovery. Additionally, it is being used as an alternative to medicated solutions for chronic pain and generating notable results. The weightlessness achieved by effortlessly floating in a dense salt water solution makes it possible for the muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems to rest in a zero gravity environment, a unique sensation that only astronauts and free divers will regularly experience. Floating has been a great way for me to visualize my events, meditate/relax, and help with recovery from training. It is an out of body experience and has been beneficial with not only my athletics, but with life as well. If you are interested in trying floating please contact me! Visit the REST website.
For the past three seasons I have been a part of the Honey Stinger Hive. The honey stinger products are great to use during, between, and after workouts as well as for competitions. The products contain real honey which is rich in carbohydrates, making it ideal fuel for working muscles. Honey is a natural sweetener without any added ingredients and can help before, during, and after exercise to help me train, perform, and recover properly especially when traveling or on the go. Some of their products are also USDA organic, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free as well as non GMO ingredients which is important to ensure there are good things going into my body. If you are interested in purchasing some products from Honey Stinger please contact me.
I have been very fortunate to continue my education along side my training with the help from a DeVry University scholarship. I am pursuing a degree in Business Management with a concentration in Health Service Management. The online program allows me to continue my traveling, competing, and training with my schooling at my convenience. Visit the DeVry University website
