I have been working with kids in the gym and in a classroom setting since 2002. I graduated from University of Michigan with degrees in English and Psychology. At Michigan I was lucky enough to compete on an NCAA championship team in 1999. It was such a wonderful experience competing on a team and representing my school that I want to pass on that experience and make sure that men's gymnastics continues at the collegiate level.
I've been coaching at St. Charles Gymnastics Academy for several years and am planning on continuing that. I was privileged enough to compete at the NCAA championships on rings and parallel bars three years in a row with UIC. I had the best time being apart of a college team and it was so rewarding. I want to offer that to this new NIU varsity program and help expand men's college gymnastics.
