Currently, Makayla is an honor student at William Davies Middle School and she will graduate in 2021. When she has time outside of gymnastics, she enjoys track & field, biking, swimming, STEM club and drama club.
As a toddler, Makayla was very active and energetic. She would climb and jump on everything so her parents took Makayla to gymnastics for a recreational class. After Makayla's first trial class, she was invited to join the competitive team and gymnastics became her passion.
As a level 7 gymnast in 2013, Makayla won the uneven bars title with a 9.675 at the State Championships. She moved up to level 8 for the 2014 season where she placed seventh in the all-around with a 37.350 and sixth on uneven bars at the State Championships. At the Region 7 Championships, she finished ninth in the all-around with a 37.225 and second on uneven bars with a 9.600. Makayla continued competing level 8 in 2015. She placed first in the all-around with a 37.950 and second on uneven bars and floor exercise at the State Championships. At the Region 7 Championships, she finished second in the all-around with a 38.150 and first on uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.
Makayla moved up to level 9 in 2016. She finished fourth on uneven bars with a 9.375 at the State Championships. At the Region 7 Championships, she placed third in the all-around with a 37.250 and second on uneven bars with a 9.550. Makayla qualified to the Level 9 Eastern Nationals in Virginia Beach, VA where she placed in the top ten in the all-around.
