Aerial Silks Director
I began my acrobatic career as a competitive gymnast in Atlanta, Georgia where I ended my time competing as a National Champion, taking silver on beam and bronze on vault. Once my time as a gymnast was over, I needed to fill the void so I began teaching. I've taught gymnastics and tumbling for a total of 4 years; In 2013 I became a certified yoga instructor and in 2015, I discovered aerial arts by accident and nearly a decade later, I have no regrets. I've performed professionally at a number of venues, competed and have been teaching since 2016.
In 2021, I founded Capitol Silks with the help of the owner, Ron and have been the director since.
Outside of the gym, I'm happily married to my husband who is a First Responder.
As an athlete was in competitive gymnastics for 12 years, ending my career ranked 37th in the nation in my age group. I did allstar cheerleading for 3 years on several level 5 teams. During that time I was nominated an Nfinity Legend 3 times. I did 4 years of college cheer at Austin Peay State University. I was also a member of the U.S. National Cheerleading team winning 2 world championships in 2017 & 2018.
As a coach, has taught recreational and competitive gymnastics for 4 years (preschool-high school), allstar cheer for 8 years (levels 1-6), high school cheer for 8 years, and college cheer for 3 years.
