Gymnastics Experience: I started gymnastics at the age of five. After being in recreational gymnastics for a short period of time I was invited to join the J.O. Competitive Team Program. I participated on team until I was a level 7, which is when an injury took me out of gym. This is when I discovered my passion to coach gymnastics. I’ve been coaching since August of 2005, working with recreational, developmental and team programs.
What do you like most about working at SGA? What I like most about working at SGA Lake City, Glade, is having a voice within the individuals I work closest with. My boss listens to my ideas and my co-workers and myself work closely together to make them happen. We all support each other and work together to offer creative, supportive, and positive feedback and then make our ideas a reality to better the individual programs we’re responsible for. I love being appreciated and listened to in order to successfully do my job. My boss trusts me to produce high quality work and results. I work hard to maintain that level of trust, which keeps me engaged and excited to continue to grow as an individual and within the company.
Favorite Color: Pink
Favorite Gymnastics Event: As a gymnast my favorite event was floor, however, as a coach I enjoy bars and beam.
Hobbies: When I am not at the gym coaching, I enjoy spending time with my son, Eddie, doing various activities on our free time. I also love me some Starbucks!
