My love for the sport started at age 8 while cheering for my Elementary school. I cheered all through school and also cheered for an All-Star gym while in Jr/Sr High.
At 17 I started coaching gymnastics for kids ages 2-18 recreationally at a local gym. I went to college, cheered for my D2 program, and traveled around the US working for ELITE teaching summer gymnastic camps & choreography.
In 2013 I joined as a cheer/gymnastic instructor for a brand new All-Star program in Pennsylvania. The teams won numerous titles and traveled to Nationals where they placed 2nd at the D2 SUMMIT in Disney.
In 2016 my family packed up and moved to Florida. My daughters cheered for TopGun & I became a spectator. I knew that wouldn’t last long with my love for the sport. Reese and Harper eventually moved on from cheerleading and wanted to try something new.
We found Soar Athletics & my girls fell in love with the sport. Harper is currently on the performance team & Reese drops in every now and again to learn something new.
I am very good with the younger kids and I love to joke and laugh with them while teaching the basics. I love to see kids gain confidence, new skills, and “come out of their shell”. Tough love is important, they learn to work hard as well as respect their coaches and peers.
