"My personal coaching philosophy is that the single most important lesson is any student is capable of whatever accomplishment that they can see and feel — whether that accomplishment is a specific gymnastics skill, or a larger, long-term accomplishment such as placing first in an All-around in a State Meet, getting straight A's, or perfecting a song on the piano.
As a competitive gymnast, my personal heroes were my coaches and I know how influential they can be in a child's life. Nothing makes me feel more complete than encouraging a child’s physical and emotional development while watching them accomplish goals.
"The body follows the mind” is the mantra I live by. Children must learn how to use positive language to influence their body’s actions. This requires a firm, kind, confident, hands-on approach to coaching. Teaching the child to see and feel what they want to accomplish using positive words to help move their vision closer, and simultaneously showing how they are the ones who are making it happen. This process is the key to a child's success and the result is a feeling of accomplishment and confidence."
