Recreational Coach

Ever since I was 5 and started gymnastics I fell in love right away with the sport and everything it taught me. I trained and competed at SCV Aerials until level 5. Then I decided to try competitive cheerleading and trained at Flyers for one year, but as soon as I started high school I made the cheer squad. I was a freshman that competed varsity competition team all four years. I was also captain of my freshman and senior year. Cheer and gymnastics became who I was. When I graduated I started working U.S. Spirit Leaders camps for two summers. Now I am still coaching and tumbling while going to college to be a registered dietician. I believe that gymnastics is an amazing sport for anyone, nothing makes me more happy than being able to teach kids what I love to do.
