Jump! Gymnastics in Austin, TX

MEET OUR TEAM

administration

Welcome to Jump! Gymnastics! I grew up doing gymnastics, paid my way through college coaching gymnastics. After graduating from UT with majors in Kinesiology and Psychology, decided to open Jump! Gymnastics. I have coached every level from Preschool to National Team.  I have spent the last 15 years combining and deconstructing all the knowledge I gained to create a recreational gymnastics program where students learn fast, have fun, and build confidence.

Owner

I have been working with children for the past 7 years and have enjoyed working as a teacher and as a curriculum planner.  I recently earned my Childcare Director’s Certificate.  I come from a family of wrestlers and began my own wrestling career at age 5.  I continued with it through high school and coached the  Jr. High School teams at my school.  Wrestling taught me goal setting and perseverance while instilling a deep passion for physical fitness.

 I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. From a young age, I knew that working with children was my passion. I have over 9 years of experience in early childhood education and having the opportunity to merge my passion for early childhood education and athletics at JUMP! is a dream come true. I’m a firm believer in the power of sports and fitness to develop fundamental confidence and leadership skills from a young age. In my free time, you can find me playing or watching sports, as I’m a huge Dallas Cowboys and New York Mets fan.
