Mickey’s powerlifting journey started at Texas A&M when she was persuaded by the University’s powerlifting coach to try out for the team. So she tried out, made the team, and after just 8 weeks of learning how to train and powerlift, she went on to be the 2012 USAPL Collegiate National Champion in the 198-pound class.

Since then, Mickey has graduated from Harvard Law School, held the title of IPF Junior World Champion, and holds three USAPL American Records (RAW). She currently trains at Total Performance Sports (TPS) in Massachusetts, which is owned by elitefts team member CJ Murphy.
