Personal life[edit]

Izzo was born August 5, 2001, in Greenbrae, California.[1] She began her studies at Harvard University in 2020.[2]

Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Izzo began learning to skate when she was eight or nine years old.[3] Her junior international debut came in February 2018 at the International Challenge Cup in the Netherlands, where she placed 4th.

2018–19 season[edit]

Izzo made her ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) debut in autumn 2018, placing 6th in Canada and 9th in Slovenia. In January, she won the junior ladies' title at the 2019 U.S. Championships in Detroit, Michigan. In March, making her senior international debut, she won gold at the Egna Spring Trophy in Italy.

2019–20 season[edit]

Beginning her season on the JGP series, Izzo placed 8th in Croatia and 9th in Latvia. In November, she won bronze at a senior international, the 2019 CS Asian Open Figure Skating Trophy in China.

In January, making her senior national debut, she finished 9th at the 2020 U.S. Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina. Following the event, she underwent surgery for a torn labrum in her left shoulder. Due to the operation and pandemic-related rink closures, she was off the ice from around mid-January to June.[3]

2020–21 season[edit]

Izzo was invited to her first senior Grand Prix competition, the 2020 Skate America, but withdrew before the event. She placed 9th at the 2021 U.S. Championships. She was coached by Mark Mitchell and Peter Johansson until the end of the season.[3]

2021–22 season[edit]

Izzo decided to train under Aleksey Letov and Olga Ganicheva at the Skating Club of Boston.[3] In September, she won bronze at the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic.
