Why I love gymnastics/teaching: I fell in love with gymnastics at three years old, and from there my passion for the sport has only grown. Gymnastics taught me so many valuable lessons like time management and perseverance. This sport gave me my best friends who I will keep for the rest of my life. I will forever be thankful for all that gymnastics has given me, and I hope to give young gymnasts the same opportunity to fall in love with this sport like I did so many years ago.
Fun Fact: I am the oldest of five kids, and my youngest sister is 13 years younger than me.
