As the owner of Gymsport I eat, sleep and love gymnastics, cheer and tumbling. I was a member of the British Olympic Gymnastics team in my youth. I am the proud owner of three dobermans named Samson, Delilah, and Romeo. I have coached competitive teams in levels 4 through 8 (including the State Champion level 7 team of 2005), and spend a lot of time choreographing optionals’ floor routines. My cheer and gymnastics teams have won many state and national titles. I have been published in American Cheer magazine and am certified as a national judge for cheer competitions. I am also qualified as an Elite level USA Gymnastics coach.

Gymsport’s Teacher iN Training (TNT) program is for teens who show an exceptional level of responsibility, a great work ethic and a positive attitude. These individuals are asked to come in to train with one of our seasoned coaches to learn how to coach, lead a class, interact with young athletes and to concentrate on safe, fun, progressive teaching. We’re very proud of our TNTs, and we know that someday they will be an amazing part of our coaching staff here at Gymsport!
