CoachMy motto in life: "Work hard today to be even better tomorrow than you are today".
I have always had a passion for gymnastics and was self-taught before enrolling into a gymnastics program sponsored by our local NJ Police Athletic League in 1974. I started competitive gymnastics at the age of 9 until the age of 16. Due to injuries sustained, multiple knee surgeries and physical limitations, it brought my gymnastics career to an abrupt end. But despite the disappointments in progressing my gymnastics career, I've never lost the passion for the sport and why I've committed so many years to coaching.
I began coaching gymnastics in 1993 through 2005 and resume again in 2015. My teaching philosophy is to share my passion for gymnastics and offering over 10 years of experience coaching children of all ages the awareness and excitement for the sport of gymnastics and aid in the child's development.
