In 2016 she finished 18th on vault at the European Championships. In 2019 she won silver on the uneven bars at the World Challenge Cup in Turkey, the first podium finish by an Irish female gymnast at that level. She made the top 50 in the floor and All-Around competitions at the 2019 European Championships. She completed her Leaving Certificate at Christ King Girls SS in Douglas in June 2021 and hopes to study pharmacy in future.
