I have been coaching for 8 years in various aspects of physical activity such as martial arts, functional training, and gymnastics. I am a 9 time World and a 4 time national martial arts champion, and I am the former team co-captain of the world martial arts team "Team International." I am also the head coach for the Washington High School Gymnastics team. What I love about coaching kids the most is seeing everyone progress and feeling empowered about themselves all while having fun. What I love about gymnastics and ninja is that both sports challenge not only your body but also your mind and teach you that anything is possible with hard work and dedication.

What do you love about kids?
I love working with kids because it gives me a chance to inspire them to want to work hard, learn, and become passionate about gymnastics and discover who they are as an individual. I also love getting to know each and everyone of my students and having awesome conversations with them.

Why do you work at Bay Aerials?
I work at Bay Aerials because Bay Aerials creates a great family environment that I am happy to be a part of. Everyone works well together and are happy to help each other.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
My favorite thing to do outside of work is to spend time with family and friends, be outdoors, and excercise.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?
If I could have a superpower it would be to have the power of healing, so all sickness would never exist.

Share something about yourself that people at Bay Aerials don't know!
Something that most people don't know about me is that I am a certified personal trainer.
