Additional information

MAJOR MOVE
Dual citizen of United States and Canada. "My mother is Canadian and when I was little we used to go up every summer and winter until I got real busy in college. There are a lot of great vaulters in the US and I had the opportunity to go to Canada and be able to be on their team, so I think we just kind of saw that (opportunity) and decided to take it."
