Starting my life in sports, flipping was something I was always about! Which led my way right into Gymnastics. Starting when I was about six years old, I fell in love with the sport instantly. Seven years later, I end my career as a level ten from WOGA Gymnastics, and two National gold medals for Vault and High Bar. Shortly after leaving gymnastics, I didn’t want the thrill to end there! Mixed Martial Arts was my next calling. Started my training in Jujitsu, I rolled my way into a brown belt in six years. From then to now I’ve been coaching! I coached Woman’s optionals gymnastics for five years and have coached tumbling for ten plus years!
