Tori's mom wanted to have a fun activity to do with Tori. At the age of two, she began Mommy and Me classes at “The Little Gym” in Virginia Beach, VA. When she turned three years old, she moved back to her hometown of Erie, PA due to her mom’s military career. There, she focused on dance classes, but had more energy to burn than she was getting just from dance. So, Tori's mom tried her in recreational gymnastics where after a few months, she was asked to join pre-team at Lakettes Gymnastics Academy.
As a level 5 gymnast in 2016, Tori placed third on uneven bars and fifth on floor exercise at the State Championships. She was the Level 7 State All-Around and Balance Beam Champion, 2018 Level 8 State Balance Beam Champion and 2018 Level 8 Regional Qualifier. Tori moved up to level 9 for the 2019 season where she qualified to the Region 7 Championships.
