About

We are the 2024 U.S. Junior Champions. We teamed up together in spring of 2022. In our first season together, we won the junior pewter medal at the 2023 U.S. Championships in January and won gold at our first international event in February 2023. In our second season, we finished second at two Junior Grand Prix events and qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Final. In addition to skating pairs together, we are both single skaters as well.

I started skating at age 5. My sister, Isabella, is a senior ice dancer with her partner, Ivan Desyatov. She started skating through U.S. Figure Skating’s Learn to Skate program. I thought skating looked fun, so I joined too! I also started skating through the Learn to Skate program.My favorite thing about skating is how much fun I have skating. My least favorite thing about skating is falling! When I’m not on the ice skating, I enjoy reading and poetry.

I started skating at age 8. My favorite thing about skating is the exhilaration that I feel during performances. In addition, it’s always rewarding when I can see my goals become a reality through hard work. That, coupled with the joy and excitement of performing, always keeps me invigorated. When I’m not skating, I enjoy playing & tutoring piano, photography, exploring nature, spending time with family and friends & visiting museums.
