She will join Sophie Macy, Taylor Schababerle and Noelle Marsh in Pullman, Wash. at the start of the 2021-22 season.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

Last summer, she finished fourth in the 200m back and fifth in the 100m back at Mount Hood Futures. In 2018, she earned two best times at Juniors West and placed seventh in the 500 free at Carlsbad Sectionals.

Her best times include:
