In the fall of 2012, Gaskins moved to Ohio in order to train at the Cincinnati Gymnastics Academy, under the tutelage of Mary Lee Tracy. Throughout the 2013 season, Gaskins competed as a Level 10, qualifying to the Nastia Liukin Cup – she tied for 19th place with Emily Schild. Later, she finished second in the all-around at the Ohio State Championships and second at the Region 5 Championships. Earning a bid to the 2013 J.O. National Championships, Gaskins finished second in the all-around (only 0.025 away from the title), and tied for second on the uneven bars with Marissa Oakley and Grace Waguespack.
Following her qualification to the elite level, she was fourth in the all-around in the second session of the American Classic, at the Karolyi Ranch. At the 2013 U.S. Classic, Gaskins finished ninth in the all-around and, consequently, earned a bid to Nationals. At Nationals, Gaskins placed tenth in the all-around. As a result, she made the U.S. National Team. In November, she competed at the Mexican Open with the U.S. team, winning the team title.
In 2014, Gaskins finished twelfth in the all-around at the 2014 U.S. Classic. Later, at Nationals, she found herself in sixth in the all-around competition, inducted to the National team again. On October 11, 2014, Gaskins committed to the University of Florida and the Gators program for the 2018–19 season.
