My journey with Extreme Gymnastics began when my daughter was in a parent and tot class at 2 years old.  She ended up competing through her senior year and has now graduated from MSU!  I thoroughly enjoyed being a gym parent and miss it immensely.  My love for the sport and interest in the gym business brought me to start helping out in the office when Sydney was 9 years old and the rest is history.  I am so proud to be a part of the growth and development of Extreme and look forward to many years to come.
