Interesting Facts – I was a cheerleader for 12 years before becoming a Coach. I always felt like being a cheerleader was the one thing I always did for myself just because I loved it, and I had amazing coaches to guide me along the way. By becoming a Coach I am hoping to give that guidance I was allotted, to others that have that same passion.
