Experience in gymnastics

I did gymnastics myself from the age of 5 to 13 years old. I competed in artistic gymnastics at local and regional level as well as national tumbling. I also performed in sport acrobatic gymnastics. I started coaching 15 years ago. I have coached in different settings- clubs and schools and at university. I now coach recreational and general gymnastics for LGC.

Why do you coach?

I love coaching. Seeing children develop their gymnastics skills and personal qualities is very rewarding.

One fun fact about you?

I can French plait hair

If you could pick a super power what would you choose and why?

Superpower I would like is to be super stretchy as flexibility doesn’t come naturally to me!
