About Me: I’m proud to be known as one of the best young female martial artists and trickers in the world today. I currently hold the rank of 2nd degree black belt in kempo, and have won World Championship Titles in both Forms and Weapons categories at events around the World. I started martial arts training when I was 6 and, in 2008, I won the ISKA World Championship for Musical Forms. Right now I hold eight ISKA World Titles. I’ve been featured in online magazines, viral internet videos, and have performed on TV. In addition to being a member of Team Paul Mitchell, I’ve performed with a group called Sideswipe, performing for military men and women and their families in Japan and Cuba. I enjoy giving back and supporting the martial arts community by teaching private lessons and seminars around the world.

Fun Facts: I love to paint and draw, and I was a competitive level 9 gymnast until 2009 when I decided to train martial arts full-time. I also have two younger sisters.
Started Martial Arts Because: When I was a kid, I went to my cousin’s karate class with her and got to lead the class through conditioning and stretching exercises. I loved it, and I had so much fun that I started karate classes and I have been dedicated to the martial arts ever since.
How Has Martial Arts changed your life?: Martial arts has given me opportunities that not a lot of people get to experience. I’ve been fortunate enough to teach and perform for martial artists all around the world.
