I grew up in Tulsa, Ok and graduated from Union High School! My entire childhood was spent competing optional level gymnastics and cheerleading until I headed to the University of Oklahoma and continued my cheerleading career for the Sooners until graduating in 2003. After receiving my BS in Radiation Sciences from OU and post graduate degree in Radiology Physicians Assistant from Loma Linda University, and marrying my middle school sweetheart Ryan, I continued to coach what I loved for so many years! I coached gymnastics in Tulsa and a local Tulsa Public School cheer squad before having my three children. I resigned my full time job from a local radiology group after 10 years to be a full time mom, then re-entering the coaching world teaching tumbling and also coaching through Bixby Youth Cheer in my spare time! I now continue to teach tumbling for South Tulsa Dance Co. giving back to what I loved my entire childhood! Outside of teaching tumbling, I teach Physics at Tulsa Community College, contract work for a local physician and a full time bus driver and personal cheerleader to all of my kids activities such as dance, soccer, baseball and wrestling! My daughter Maguire dances for THR!VE and loves being a part of the STDC family.
