Katie on Coaching

I love coaching, my favorite moment is when a gymnast gets a new skill or something they have worked so hard to achieve and the smile on their face is the best. It’s an awesome feeling to know that you share that bond with a gymnast and helped give them confidence in themselves and their abilities. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
