At the 2012, she entered four events, placing second in the 1650 free, ninth in the 500 free, 13th in the 200 free and 20th in the 400 IM. In the second half of the season, she finished third in the 1000 and 500 free contests at Cincinnati, then won the 1000 free against Akron. Competing at Toledo, Pearce finished third in the 1000 free and fourth in the 500 free.
