Gymnastics has been a passion of mine since I was six years old. I excelled in double-mini trampoline and power tumbling at Sunflower Gymnastics. Once I was done competing TNT gymnastics, I continued my love for gymnastics and started coaching. Coaching gymnastics was just as rewarding as participating and competing in the sport. I’ve been employed by multiple gyms and learned each of their philosophies. With that knowledge, I’ve been able to combine the best of all worlds of gymnastics. It’s my goal to make gymnastics fun and safe for kids. I believe gymnastics can be a great confidence-building sport if taught with an understanding touch. The best part of coaching is celebrating learning experiences and guiding children through their setbacks. Gymnastics teaches more than just coordination and cartwheels.
