Arianna has always been very flexible and would jump on everything, so her parents decided to enroll her into gymnastics for fun when she was five years old. She started her competitive gymnastics career at Golden Grip Gymnastics in Plano, TX where she trained under coaches Evgueni Indioukov and Marina Tartarchina until 2015.

Arianna competed level 8 in 2012 and 2013. She qualified to the State Championships in 2012. In 2013, Arianna placed ninth in the all-around with a 38.100 and first on vault at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she finished fifth in the all-around with a 38.025 and seventh on balance beam. Arianna moved up to level 9 for the 2014 season where she placed third in the all-around with a 37.325, first on uneven bars and third on vault at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she finished eighth in the all-around, second on floor exercise and fifth on vault. This qualified Arianna to the Level 9 Western Nationals in Boise, ID where she placed 18th in the all-around, second on vault and fifth on floor exercise.

As a first-year level 10 gymnast in 2015, Arianna placed fifth on uneven bars and eighth on balance beam at the State Championships. She was unable to compete at the Regionals due to an injury. Ariana did not compete in 2016 due to a broken ankle. In 2017, Arianna finished second in the all-around with a 38.175, second on uneven bars and third on balance beam and floor exercise at the State Championships. She qualified to the Region 3 Championships, finishing tenth in the all-around, fifth on uneven bars and seventh on vault.

Currently, Arianna is preparing for the 2018 season where she hopes to qualify to the Junior Olympic Nationals. She trains 29 hours per week at Metroplex Gymnastics in Allen, TX under coaches Marnie Futch and Gina Logan. Arianna is working hard to reach her long-term goal to obtain a Division I college gymnastics scholarship.
