I stumbled into a jiu jitsu gym on a sunny fall day in 2022, via the suggestion of a colleague of mine. It was never a question of "will I go back?" after that. I had been waiting to feel passionate about something for a long time and this was the perfect fit. I quickly spent most of my days juggling my life as a model, a job I've had since I was 16, and my new found interest. I wouldn't have it any other way! I threw myself in head first and didn't look back. I enjoy competing as often as I can and hope to prove to myself what I know I'm capable of, even as a double agent. Above all else the amazing people I've met and learned from along the way are the best part. The community alone is priceless, and gift I never take for granted.
