About Me

I am a fifteen-year-old karate tournament competitor and epilepsy warrior.  I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was six years old.  When I was nine, I started studying Wado-Ryu Karate at the Milan Martial Arts Academy under Sensei Seth Lee.  I earned a first-degree black belt before transferring to Lexington Wado Ryu, where I currently study with Sensei Thomas Mitchell.

I am a tournament competitor with many victories in traditional forms and weapons events, and point sparring.  This season, I am adding creative forms and weapons to my repertoire.  In March 2024, I was invited to join Team Heartland - a national sports martial arts competition team, and in April, they made me a team captain.  I am thrilled to be a part of the team!

In addition to my martial arts, I advocate for people who have epilepsy.  I work to raise awareness about epilepsy and to help people understand that their epilepsy doesn't have to keep them from their goals.  When I'm not training, competing, or advocating, I am an active member of the North Jackson Church of Christ in Jackson, TN, and enjoy whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, and playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Find the people who believe in you more than you believe in yourself.

You need a secret weapon.

Embrace the struggle.
