Favorite thing about gymnastics: "Watching gymnasts get new skills and witnessing how excited they get. I love the look on their faces and all the cheering that happens from the entire gym!"
Favorite thing about Spectrum: "Spectrum is like my second home. I have been here forever. I have made many friendships, shed tears and blood, and spent more time here in the gym than I have with my own family. I loved being a gymnast here, and now I love coaching girls who get to experience what I did and see why I fell in love with the sport and with the gym."
