I started doing gymnastics here at Grace when I was 4 years old, started team when I was 7 and competed up until I turned 18. Throughout my career, I competed level 4 (now level 3) through level 10 with Kevin and Carleigh as my coaches. I went to 3 different Western National Championships and won beam (my favorite event) at my last one. But the competitions and championships are not the first thing that comes to mind when I think back on my years in this sport, what comes to mind are the friendships, memories, and life lessons learned. I would not be who I am today without this sport.
I started coaching just about a month after I stopped competing and ever since I have loved passing on my knowledge and love for the sport to the kids I coach.
Currently I am attending Pierce Community College and am working towards a Business Associate’s Degree.
