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. In 2020, Tori qualified to the Level 9 State Championships but was unable to compete due to COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, Tori placed seventh in the all-around and third on vault at the Region 7 Championships. She qualified to the Level 9 Eastern Nationals in College Park, GA, finishing in the top ten in the all-around and seventh on vault.

As a first-year level 10 gymnast in 2022, Tori placed seventh on balance beam at the State Championships and qualified to the Region 7 Championships.

When Tori isn't busy training in the gym, she enjoys dancing, researching fun facts, watching musicals and thrill adventures. Currently, Tori is an honor student at Villa Maria Academy and she will graduate in 2024. Tori is a founding member of Hear Erie's Youth (H.E.Y.) and the current co-president. This is a subsidiary of the philanthropy non-profit, Erie Community Foundation. These members spend countless hours of community service each month, while learning about grant writing and have the sole responsibility to decide how to spend $10,000 to deserving groups who serve Erie's youth each year.
