What are you waiting for, you're what's missing!
Open Gym Manager/Party Director and still flipping!
I was a gymnast for ten years before I switched my attention to specifically horses, but all animals. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to combine both my passions and I’m currently pursuing a degree in Veterinary Medicine. Though my love for animals has been prominent over the last six years, my spark for gymnastics has never died. I enjoy coaching and all the milestones that come with it, whether it be strength and form improvements or learning an entirely new skill. The dedication and hard work from gymnastics of all ages and sizes has always been incredibly inspiring to me and build me to put my all into everything I do, back when I was in a leotard and even now as a full-time working college student.
I have been doing gymnastics here since I was a baby. My favorite food is Prime Rib and Mashed taters, favorite color Teal, and favorite animals are my cat Nalla and dog Raina. My childhood dream job was either to be an Olympic gymnast or a dolphin trainer. When not coaching, I am a Realtor. My favorite thing about GZG. All the kids

My favorite color is blue, but the shades of blue like the sky. I dislike negativity. There is power in positive thinking. My favorite food is fresh and if it comes out of my yard and therefore free. Since having the opportunity of owning the gym for so many decades, my favorite thing would be that I had the privilege to raise my children in the gym and had the chance to watch so many other children grow from infants to adults.
I wanted to be a gymnast since I was nine years old. 28 years later, I was lucky enough to find the adult class and have been ever since. I love the sport and can’t get it out of my system. My favorite foods are Diet Coke with a McDonald’s plain hamburger. I always wanted and still want to be an Olympic Gymnasts of course.
