Charlotte Booth began gymnastics at the age of six after being seen doing flips and tricks into the pool. Charlotte's parents put her into a gymnastics class and Charlotte took to the sport right away. Charlotte began competing in the fall of 2013 with Brandy Johnson's Gymnastics as a level 1. At her first meet, the Harvest Moon Invite, Charlotte won the beam, floor, and all around titles. In 2014, Charlotte competed level 2 and had a great season.
Skipping level 3, Charlotte competed level 4 during the 2015 season and went on to win the vault and bars titles and take home silvers on floor and in the all around at the Florida State Championships. As a level 5 in 2016, Charlotte competed in four meets and placed in the top three in the all around at three of those meets.
Charlotte skipped levels 6 and 7 and began her optional career as a level 8 in 2017 at the IGI Chicago Style Meet. Here, Charlotte won the beam title and took home bronze medals on vault and bars. Charlotte had a solid level 8 season and went on to place third all around at state and qualify to the Region 8 Championships. At Regionals, Charlotte placed in the top 5 on bars and beam.
Kicking off her 2017-2018 season, Charlotte competed in the Myrtle Beach Cup Elite Compulsory Qualifier where she earned her compulsory score for Hopes 12-13. After competing level 8, Charlotte skipped level 9 and competed level 10. Charlotte opened up her level 10 season at the Texas Prime Meet where she won the vault title. Charlotte continued to have a great season and placed third on floor at state. Charlotte moved on to Regionals where she placed fifth on vault and eighth all around, qualifying to JO Nationals.

In February, Charlotte competed at the Everest National Elite Qualifier where she won the vault, floor, and all around titles and re-qualified to the American and U.S. Classic competitions. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Charlotte's season was cut short as the remainder of the season was canceled. Due to the remainder of the 2020 season being canceled, USAG allowed for all Hopes and Elite Qualifiers to retain their qualifying score for the 2021 season. With this, Ella qualified to the 2021 American and U.S. Classic Competitions.
Currently, Charlotte trains 28 hours per week under coach Kelly Pitzen at Brandy Johnson's Gymnastics. In the future, Charlotte's goal is to earn a spot on the US National Team and receive a college scholarship to a division 1 school for gymnastics.
