Originally from the Boston area attending Reading Memorial High School, I joined my high school’s gymnastics team as a freshman. Through my four years of learning from incredible coaches, I was able to earn a spot competing on balance beam and floor exercise, earn the Most Improved award twice, get voted as a co-captain of the team, then lead my team to an overall 6th place ranking in the state of Massachusetts. My growing passion for the sport and adoration for my own coaches inspired me to coach the sport as well, so at age seventeen I starting coaching in Winchester, Massachusetts. I’m now attending The George Washington University and continuing my coaching endeavors here in the DC area! I am USAG Instructor Certified and USAG SafeSport Certified.
