I have been involved in gymnastics most of my life both as a competitor and a coach. I started gymnastics when I was seven years old, and have been coaching for more years than I want to mention. I graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. degree in athletic training with a focus on sportsmedicine. I have a 15 year old son who provides me with both my greatest joys and challenges in life and who knows that he always comes first. What I love the most about being involved in gymnastics is that success can be measured in teaching a toddler to jump, climb, or simply wait their turn, to teaching a young girl to fly through the air and in the thousands of steps in between. What I strive to achieve in our program at Airborne is to give to each person that walks through our doors a positive experience that they will carry with them the rest of their life.
