My days as a gymnast...
I started gymnastics back in the old days! inspired by Olga Korbet! When we vaulted over a horse and the bars were adjusted to fit each person by height. I Competed for my Junior High and High School teams. My Favorite event, (just like All the Hamlins), was beam.
I started Volunteering here in the gym 22 years ago, when my oldest was in Toddler gym. Over time I became more and more involved and about 18 years ago became an employee. I began coaching the Advanced preschool class and fell in love with making a difference in these young lives. This is when I decided my goal...."Change the World one child at a time!!" I have been coaching in this gym for 18 years now and have coached from Preschool up to level 6. I have raised 4 daughters during my time here at Grace and feel like it is my second home. Three of those daughters were very successful gymnasts in this program and fell in Love with this sport just like I did way back when!! I also work full time for the City of Tacoma for the past 26 years in their IT department.
I Love being a part of this Y, this Team, and these amazing young people!!
