"I've had the pleasure of working with so many girls and boys over the years watching them grow from beginner gymnasts to very accomplished athletes and responsible adults. I've learned that for anyone to be successful in life they have to love what they do. Our job as a coach is to inspire children to want to do their best and be there every step of the way to support them. Coaching is an amazing responsibility, never to be taken lightly."
