Grace began gymnastics around the age of three. Her older sister had been in gymnastics, so she gave it a try. It ended up being something she loved and has kept up with ever since. She began her competitive gymnastics career at Oshkosh Gymnastics in Wisconsin. When she was at Oshkosh, she was the 2014 Level 4 WI All-Around and Balance Beam Silver Medalist, 2015 Level 4 WI State Floor Exercise Champion and 2016 Level 4 WI State Vault and Balance Beam Silver Medalist. Following her 2016 season, Grace and her family relocated to Minnesota, so she began training at Legacy Gymnastics.

In 2017, Grace skipped level 5 and moved up to level 6. She placed sixth in the all-around, second on vault and third on floor exercise at the State Championships. She qualified to the 2017 Region 4 Championships where she placed third on balance beam and in the top 15 in the all-around. As a level 7 gymnast in 2018, Grace finished first on floor exercise and in the all-around with a 37.800. Grace moved up to level 8 for the 2019 season where she finished third in the all-around and first on uneven bars and floor exercise. She qualified to the Region 4 Championships, finishing sixth in the all-around, second on floor exercise and third on vault.

Grace qualified to the 2020 Level 9 State Championships but was unable to compete due to COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, she finished fourth in the all-around, second on uneven bars and third on floor exercise at the State Championships. At the Region 4 Championships, she placed sixth in the all-around and second on floor exercise. Grace qualified to the Level 9 Western Nationals in Iowa.

As a first-year level 10 gymnast, Grace placed ninth on floor exercise with a 9.300 at the Region 4 Championships.

When Grace isn't busy training over 20 hours each week in the gym, she enjoys music, writing and spending time with her friends. She was born in Maoming, China and was adopted by Amy and Tim Kiefer when she was a toddler. She has a brother, Garrison and a sister, Gabrielle and a yellow lab named Boulder. Currently, Grace is an honor student at Wayzata High School and she will graduate in 2023.
