Coach Katie loves working with children and asked us to share this with all of you!

"I am thankful for the coaching opportunities I have been given as I have been involved in gymnastics for over 25 years. I love to have fun with my kids while still keeping a disciplined environment. I strive to make sure each child reaches their full potential and, while in so many ways I treat all my kids equally, I understand every child is different and I take the time to learn about each child to cater to their needs as best possible. I am competitively driven and love watching my kids' faces light up when they achieve their goals. At the same time I am pushed harder when they are upset as it just means we have to get in the gym and work more to grow and succeed. I like to use my time as a coach to teach more than gymnastics - the life lessons that can be learned are never ending! Thank you for letting me a part of your child's gymnastics career and to ETCG for welcoming me back"
