Coming from a family who has a strong gymnastics background, I always knew I wanted to open my own gym and coach gymnastics. Growing up, my mother was a gymnastics judge and my sister and I were both big into gymnastics. Being surrounded by the sport early on led me and my sister to both fall in love with it and continue with it into adulthood. My sister opened Head Over Heels in NJ in 1987 and I followed in her footsteps opening Head Over Heels in MA in 1997. I was a competitive gymnast for over 10 years in both the USA Gymnastics program and for Weymouth High School. I have had the pleasure of coaching gymnastics since 1987, and have experience coaching all levels – from preschool and recreational classes, developmental programs and competitive teams. I have had State, Regional, and National competitors with numerous achievements over the years. I am excited everyday to get to share what I love with the staff and gymnasts that enter Head Over Heels, and look forward to watching more amazing athletes grow up in our program.
