Owner and Optional Coach
I've been with Gym-Kinetics for 13 years. I've been an athlete my whole life, so I enjoy the opportunity I have every day to coach the sport of gymnastics. I coach a wide variety of levels and events, so every day is a new, but awesome, challenge. The greatest feeling of accomplishment for me is seeing the kids smile after achieving a new skill, beating a previous high score and getting all of those medals!
Stars & Levels 3-7
Xcel & Levels 6-10
I started working at Gym-Kinetics in the summer of 2014. It has been a huge learning experience for me. Having to transition from gymnast to coach, there is a lot to learn. I'm excited to see what each new season has to bring!
Levels 4-7, Stars, Mom & Mini
I have been involved in gymnastics my entire life. After ending my gymnastics career, I knew I wanted to stay involved. I currently coach pre-team all the way through Level 10. My favorite thing about coaching is bonding with all the kids and seeing them achieve their goals.

Stars, Level 3, Xcel & Recreational
My love and passion for gymnastics came from my personal experience as a competitive gymnast. I was a level 7 competitive gymnast at Tumbling On USA. I have worked at Gym-Kinetics since 2012. I started as a recreational instructor and grew into the recreational girls director at Gym-Kinetics. I managed the recreational department for 3.5 years. In the past year, I became more involved in coaching our team students. I coach our pre-team "Stars" students, helping them transition from recreational to competitive gymnastics. I also started the Xcel program at Gym-Kinetics for the 2015-2016 season. I coached two separate levels of Xcel: Silver and Gold. Our students had a phenomenal first season and our Silver team took 2nd place in the state. The Xcel program has doubled in one year, and we hope to continue growing! I am looking forward to coaching Level 3 for the first time this season! It is such a pleasure to coach at Gym-Kinetics and touch so many childrens' lives!
TOPs and Levels Pre-Team - Level 9
I started coaching gymnastics in 2011 as a pre-team and Level 3 coach. Ever since then, I have been working my way up into coaching the higher levels, learning more each year. In 2014, I helped set up the first Gym-Kinetics TOPs team, and in the first and second year of competing we have qualified for National TOPs Testing. I love teaching and motivating these young athletes in this sport!
Recreational Class Instructor
I have been teaching classes at Gym-Kinetics for the past 9 years. I teach recreational classes for ages 2-6. I enjoy working with children, helping them learn new gymnastics skills. Watching the children learn is very rewarding, and seeing their excitement when they learn a new skill is a wonderful feeling. It is very exciting to see the kids start young and work their way up to advanced classes and even the team.
I am a former competitive cheerleader and have coached many Wildcat Cheerleaders. I have coached cheerleading for 3 years now and have worked at Gym-Kinetics since the summer of 2010. I find it very rewarding to teach new skills to gymnasts.
