      “I coach because I love to see young athletes grow in their skills and confidence.  I am a teacher at heart and receive great satisfaction in being a part of the learning process for my students.  Giving a gymnast a “high-five” for personal victory, whether great or small, reminds me why I coach!”

      “Growing up in the gym taught me the sport of gymnastics, but it also taught me many other life lessons as well.  My coaches instilled in me the importance of determination, self-discipline, respect, integrity, self-esteem, and perseverance.  These are the same principles that have made me the person I am today.  I want to pass on my knowledge and love of gymnastics, but overall life skills and character development are my main goals”
