My parents enrolled me in gymnastics at age 3 because they were afraid for my safety, as I frequently tried cartwheels on couches and flips off diving boards. I began competing gymnastics in Virginia under very strict Russian coaching, and at age 11 moved to Colorado Springs where I competed through level 10. I took a break in high school to focus on my academics, but gymnastics came back into my life while I attended CU and had the opportunity to coach at CATS. I immersed myself in coaching and all things involving children, and in the years since I attended CU again, earning my Masters Degree in Educational Psychology and K-6 teaching certificate. I am so grateful to be able to pursue my passions for coaching and teaching! I enjoy the sport even more as a coach; I can share in the joy of progress and success of all the athletes I work with!
Now a days- I still try gymnastics and the things I used to be able to do, I just have more consequences the day after. It’s also difficult getting used to a body that is 8 inches taller than the day I was done with the competitive sport. Nevertheless, I still try! One proud moment- regaining the strength to do my stalder press to handstand after 8 years of not being able to do it!
You can also find me romping around Boulder with my boyfriend and our dogs- hiking, climbing, skiing, or my new favorite- paddle boarding!

It has been especially fun seeing all the new faces that have joined since Roots launched the new programming and emphasis on benchmarks. Last week alone, Roots athletes recorded 400+ workouts, gave more than 1500 fistbumps and wrote almost 200 comments!
And now… we are very excited to start bringing Android users into the fold! While this initial Android version does not have all the bells and whistles of the iPhone app, you can do all of the essentials to record your workouts and participate with other athletes.
