“I have coached, officiated, and advocated for women’s gymnastics for the past 23 years. Coaching has been my true love. I coach not only high school, but preschool. I believe that children need to love a sport from its purest form and that continues to grow into a passion. Gymnastics has been a large part of my life through coaching, officiating, and advocating this wonderful sport. I also have been involved with the Olympic trials as they were hosted by Boston the past two cycles. It was truly amazing to coach my preschoolers in the morning and view the best in the country that afternoon and evening. I feel very fortunate to have been a part of having the trials in Boston.”
