The family then moved to Garner where she graduated from Garner-Hayfield-Ventura High School in 2017. During High School she played golf and was a part of three Conference Championship teams. She attended the University of Iowa for two years and then transferred to Mercy College of Health Sciences in Des Moines, graduating with Summa Cum Laude honors in December 2020, with a degree in Bachelor of Science Nursing.
