ABOUT ME...

I was involved in many sports as a youngster but soon found gymnastics to be my true talent. I started competing at twelve and continued through college. Even though my personal achievements in sports were quite notable, I have been more successful at making other athletesí dreams come true. Over my 20-year career I have worked with beginner level athletes through world class competitors on the amateur, high school, collegiate, national and international levels.

Whatever your athletic goals are, competing for your YMCA, high school or even international competition, adding sport psychology techniques to your training program can help take you to the top. I have had high school players who never considered college competition receive full scholarships and also mediocre participants obtain national team prominence in a few short years. I believe one should never put limits on ambitious, young athletes - they will surprise you every time!
