One of my dreams when I was little was to do gymnastics and all kinds of crazy flips. I never quite fulfilled that dream, but I stumbled onto something better. Cheerleading! I began tumbling in high school, and have been doing it ever since. (1993-'95) I cheered for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats & competed at the UCA Nationals (1995-'99) During that time I started teaching tumbling and acro. Over the years and through working with many talented coaches, I have developed my unique style of teaching. In 2001, I moved to West Palm Beach to pursue another life long passion. I attended the Florida Culinary Institute where I earned degrees in Culinary Arts and Food & Beverage Management. Throughout my time in South Florida I have continued training and coaching. In 2008 I started my own company, Tumblefreak. I work with a variety of gyms, studios and schools, providing various training, camps & clinics. Recently, Tumblefreak has expanded into producing athletic apparel. For a brief stint in high school I took some jazz and ballet lessons, with some convincing from the same girls who talked me into cheering, which is why this is so exciting! I am honored to be working with JJ & her incredible dancers and staff at Vantage Pointe Dance Studios!
