I have coached at Gym-Kinetics since June of 2011. I coach in the Pre-school and Recreational Girls Gymnastics Departments. I was a level 8 gymnast at OGC when I was twelve until I quit due to injury. From when I was twelve up until my freshman year of high school, I did cheerleading (3 years). I did high school gymnastics for my four years of high school and I was on the varsity team all four years. I am a state qualifier and a state final qualifier on three events: bars, beam, and floor. I coached for the Lincoln-Way Grade school program for 4 years and I have been at Gym Kinetics for 2.5 years. I personally think gymnastics is the greatest sport in the world. This sport is such a passion for me and I hold it very dear to my heart. Coaching at Gym Kinetics has been a fun, rewarding experience for me. I couldn’t ask for anything better. One of the reasons why I love coaching here are the vast amount of kids I see in every session. Every child learns differently in his/her way and I love trying out new techniques to better improve their skills. I learn something new every single day!
