After moving from the state of Washington to Utah, United States of America, to train full-time with the national team, she spent her last two years of high school doing online lessons. She finished high school in 2020. "I didn't have time to go to school. I'd get home from practice at 17:00 then go online to do my schoolwork. I'm just happy that I'm graduating, and I won't have to do six classes at the same time, like I do now [early 2020]. Soon I'll be in college and I can choose the classes I want to take that work around my training schedule better." (teamusa.org, 23 Apr 2020)
