At the suggestion of a friend, Brianna's parents signed her up for a recreational class at the age of five. Little did they know that Brianna's passion for gymnastics had been ignited with the class. Brianna tried other sports and activities, such as swimming and dance, but nothing held her interest like gymnastics. Brianna's parents soon realized that she was going to be, bouncing, flipping and tumbling for a long time. Even at an early age she would stay after practice to learn new skills and always wanted to be in the gym.
