Kiara started tumbling at the age of three at Gold Coast Gymnasts located in Ventura, California, landing her third back handspring at about three and a half years old. At age four, Kiara's talent became recognized as she began performing at exhibitions with team gymnasts at Gold Coast, since she wasn't allowed to be on a competitive gymnastics team until age seven. However, at age five, Kiara was scouted for an allstar cheerleading team. Although her original plan was to quit cheerleading at age seven when she could compete with her gymnastic team, she continued competing in both cheerleading and gymnastics. Kiara has won seven scholarships and awards due to her athletic talent.
