As some of you know, gymnastics was my first love! I grew up in a gym, my best friends were at the gym, my favorite teacher was my gymnastics coach. As a high schooler I drove 60 miles...one way...to practice gymnastics 4 nights a week. Gymnastics gave me my work ethic, my dedication, and my ability to set and achieve goals. Because of my love of gymnastics I will probably never use my teaching degree...you just can't pull me out of the gym! The picture below was taken the first or second year I competed.
