Jessica began a good foundation in gymnastics at the age of 5. She competed in both compulsory and optional gymnastics at a private gym as well as on her Varsity Gymnastics Squad for her High School in Alaska. Throughout this time, she earned many top awards and metals. She began coaching recreational, team and elite levels as a hobby when she moved to Utah while she studied to obtain her degree in Science. She has taught gymnastics at various gyms in the valley from Bountiful, Sandy and West Jordan. Never missing an opportunity to learn, Jessica participates in webinars, and visits gymnastics facilities to keep up with the latest spotting techniques, and teaching trends. Jessica brings a great deal of training in the art of coaching through courses and learning from other coaches. For 20+ years she has been involved in some aspect of gymnastics whether it is teaching tumbling (floor exercise), or all four gymnastics apparatuses. Jessica is passionate about teaching proper technique and always looking at “creating” a tumbler. Never teaching a cartwheel but a cartwheel that can become an aerial. Never teaching a round off, but a round off that can bring power to a tumbling pass. Teaching age 3-18-year olds she is creative and enthusiastic about her job. Bachelors of Science U of U, USA Gymnastics member, USGA instructor certified, Certified in first aid and CPR.
She now shares her teaching concepts with our own Synergy coaching team to help develop a strong coaching front. Inspiring and enabling coaches and tumblers alike to be the best they can be.
