      What is your favorite thing about working with kids? I truly believe that the majority of my knowledge comes from working with kids. I love figuring out how each and every one of them works or is motivated. It is always a learning experience for both the kids and myself. They show love, how to never give up, that its OK to try new things, to be honest, and most importantly to live in the moment!

      What is your past experience with tumbling, cheer or gymnastics? I was first a dancer/gymnast and then a coach. I started dancing when I was 4, started gymnastics when I was 8. I was competitive in dance and gymnastics all through grade school and college. I also earned my degree from university of Maryland in dance.

      What is your biggest accomplishment? My greatest accomplishment in gymnastics was becoming an Elite Gymnast, making it on to the USA delegation, competing four times at Worlds and receiving Silver at Worlds in Portugal.

      How long have you been working in your field? I have been coaching and choreographing gymnastics since 2004. Gymnastics and dance are a part of almost all my early childhood memories.

      Favorite things when not at work? Honestly… I love to clean and bake. I am a busy bee at heart so staying active is what I love to do.

      Favorite thought or quote? “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

      Words that best describe you? Committed, passionate, honest, clever, sarcastic, competitive, adventurous
