Samantha Thompson

Gymnastics has been a part of Sam’s life for as long as she can remember. Sam says, “My mom (Miss Kara) has been coaching since before I was born, so naturally I have spent a good portion of my life in and around gymnastics. I have been in and out of gymnastics my entire life. I have been part of Gym-Ken gymnastics since I was four years old and employed since 2009. Most of my memories of gymnastics come from Gym-Ken. I was a part of Gym-Ken’s open team and many of the coaches I had when I was a gymnast, are still coaches here today. Having practically grown up at Gym-Ken, I always loved the idea of someday being able to coach here myself.”

Samantha teaches grade school and pre-school classes and is a valuable member of our summer staff. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Elementary and Special Education at Southern New Hampshire University.
