Aria began her career as an artistic gymnast at age two, but switched to rhythmic gymnastics at age seven. As a rhythmic gymnast, she qualified for level 10 at age eleven, elite at age 12, and became a member of the US Junior National Team at age 13, ranking 5th in the country. During her career, Aria became Southern California State Champion and competed internationally in Canada, the Netherlands and Spain representing the USA.
In 2011, Aria decided to retire from competition in order to focus on her education and on coaching promising athletes. She currently works with the level 6 and 7 athletes and has trained two Future Stars National Team members and one Pre Elite Squad member. Aria credits the great focus and discipline of rhythmic gymnastics as one of the reasons she was accepted into the Class of 2018 at Stanford University, where she is now a sophomore – continuing to coach at Emerald City whenever she visits her family in San Diego.
Aria is a Safety and Instructor certified professional member of United States Gymnastics Association.
