A little bit about me…Hello All!
I am a fun loving, energetic, 18yr old woman who loves kids and making people smile. I am very experienced with kids, more than the average 18yr old because I come from a larger family and have been working a full-time job since I was 12. I coached girls and boys gymnastics for 6yrs and at the same time I was a full-time nanny. While coaching gymnastics I had the amazing opportunity of coaching an all boys class and with most of the young men in that class having special needs, I got to work closely with a therapist to overcome and adapt to not only the boys struggles but my own when coaching them. I also had the wonderful opportunity of coaching boys and girls classes ranging from ages 2-16yrs and become one of the lead coaches on staff for training other coaches and helping kids one-on-one overcome obstacles that presented themselves, sometimes/most of the time my one-on-one sessions had nothing to do with gymnastics but more with life lessons in general. Such as confidence, overcoming bullying, self-worth, seeing beauty through the physical and mental pain that life gives us. I believe in empowering kids to see the good in everything because after all they are the future and if they don't see the good, who will?
A little about my past, I was raised on a farm with my 4 other siblings, 2 younger brothers and older 2 sisters. I have rescued and trained horses since I was 10yrs old and loved every minute of it. I went to school at 17yrs old for My nursing assistant certification and then went on to be a cadet for the cda fire department. I graduated from that program 6 months later and I am currently enrolled in an EMT class, which I will graduate from in Jan. of 2019 in hopes of someday going on to be a firefighter/paramedic.
I have big dreams myself so I aspire to teach kids to not only dream big but to accomplish those big dreams because our future is built on dreams and dream builders who can accomplish their dreams!
