The 2022 Skate America Series of Competition is the first event of the 2022–23 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating in Norwood, Massachusetts, October 21–23. The event is a senior level international competition for men's singles, women's singles, pairs and ice dance. During the competition, skaters have a chance to earn points and metals while qualifying for the Grand Prix Final.
Glenn scored 129.19 points for the free skate event and a total of 197.61 points. Although not feeling great about the event, she finished third in the category, as well as third in the free skate, giving her a bronze medal. During the free skate to "Without You" by Ursine Vulpine, she underrotated and put a hand down during her opening triple axel, but quickly recovered and landed six triple jumps.
Glenn has been skating since 2004, spending her time coaching at rinks in McKinney and Frisco. In 2013 the skater earned a spot on the US Figure Skating Team USA and represented the US in the Czech Republic against competitors from around the world. The skater won bronze at the Junior Grand Prix competition in the Czech Republic. Glenn is an openly LGBTQ+ ladies figure skater for Team USA.
