By the time she was ten years old, she and her brother had partnered up for the ice dance discipline.
Just a year later, they moved up to the intermediate level. Working with Tom Dickson and Judy Blumberg, they won several competitions that year including the Southwestern Regional Championships, which earned them a spot at the 2006 US Junior Championships.

Continuing to compete, they advanced to the senior level for the 2010-11 season. Though they finished fifth at their international debut (i.e. 2010 Nebelhorn Trophy), they eventually managed to win the bronze medal at the NHK Trophy event.
With more experience under their belt, their performance as only improved in the recent years. Since the early 2010’s, the Shibutanis have continued to gather several medals at events such as Skate America, the NHK Trophy, US Championships, and Cup of China, to name a few.
Most recently, they made their 2017-18 season debut at the 2017 Rostelecom Cup event with a gold medal, after finishing first in both dance events.
