Motto: “A ship is safe at harbour, but that’s not where a ship is meant to be kept.”
Why I love coaching: Gymnastics, for me, has always been an escape from everything else in my life. Gymnastics has always acted as a second home for me, and gave me a way to better myself every day, inside, and outside of workouts & competition. Through coaching, I have found how much I enjoy spreading the amazing things the sport has to offer to anyone willing to put the effort into it.
