In January 2014, she and her club teammates, including Brenna Dowell, travelled to Aiea, Hawaii for the Gymnastics in Paradise Invitational. This meet was the first meet of the season and Finnegan has intentions to make it back to the elite rankings at the Secret U.S Classic and National Championships.
