Coaching Philosophy:
Coaching means providing a fun and exciting experience for the kiddos. I absolutely love seeing their faces light up when they achieve a new skill – or wipe out! Life is not always perfect, but teaching kids that you can overcome your struggles is the most fulfilling aspect of coaching for me.


Competitive Background:

I started competing in gymnastics when I was 5 in level 4. In 2011, my family moved to Texas so I could train at WOGA Gymnastics. When I was 11, I had my first level 10 season. In 2014, I competed in the US Classics Elite competition. After the season, I was awarded the 2014 Junior Olympic Gymnast of the Year. I have competed in several dance competitions as well growing up.



Most Memorable Sports Moment:

My most memorable coaching moment was my first Trampoline and Tumbling competition. I grew up in artistic women’s gymnastics, so being able to experience another side of gymnastics was awesome. Transitioning to the T&T world last year was so much fun, and I enjoy learning different sides of the gymnastics world. I love the environment and energy of the competitions as they are very different from the competitions I grew up doing.
