My passion for gymnastics started when I was 9 years old as a USAG competitive athlete and only grew stronger transitioning to a USAG certified coach. Seeing and helping athletes reach there goals and get new skills is the best feeling! I have been coaching for 12 years now and I absolutely love it! I started as a coach in Orlando, Florida where I coached for 7 years and then moved to Little Rock, Arkansas where I coached for 5 years and am now currently back in Florida. I am a USAG certified coach and have coached everything from preschool recreational gymnastics to competitive level 8. I have continuing education in Artistic gymnastics as well as Trampoline and Tumbling. Working in this sport I have been a gymnastics summer camp manager, preschool gymnastics director, mobile gymnastics director, director of trampoline and tumbling, head team coach, and Arkansas State Director of T&T for USA Gymnastics. I have currently started my own mobile gymnastics program where I take the gymnastics equipment to daycares, preschools and elementary schools and coach. I do private lessons as well as Birthday parties and bring it all to you!
Jessica is always positive and encouraging. My daughter could not wait to attend workouts. She is a highly skilled coach. As a parent, it was important to see results. My daughter has acquired life skills that are helping her succeed in school and become a beautiful, responsible and talented young woman. Jessica has been a wonderful influence in my daughter's life.
My typical process for working with a new student is getting to know them, where they are at skill wise and what there goal is. In order for me to get the best possible results it is important for me to get to know the student because every student learns differently and responds to different coaching styles.
I have multiple certifications and training through USA Gymnastics and continue my education every year at national congress.
I Started coaching while I was a competitive gymnast, my coaches would have us coach preschool as learning experiences
I have worked with everything from preschool to level 8 competitive artistic gymnastics as well as preschool to level 10 competitive Trampoline and Tumbling
I have also worked with children with special needs using this sport as therapy.
I would say that anything is achievable as long as you put the work into it
