Favourite Event: Bars

Jess began gymnastics at the age of 6 at summer camp and her love of the sport grew with her skills as she progressed through to finish as a level 7 provincial athlete. It was the love of gymnastics and the ever present encouragement of her coaches that led Jess to share her passion with future gymnasts. Jess has had the privilege to work at many clubs from Toronto and Newmarket to the Tri-Cities. She has worked with all ages, genders and abilities; from camper and recreational to competitive. Jess believes that gymnastics is gymnastics no matter what level you are at or how old you are, you just need the passion and the drive.

Favourite Event: Trampoline

I got my start in gymnastics on the trampoline and I've loved the competitiveness of
the sport ever since. I have been competing and coaching in the sport of trampoline
competitively for 6 years. I have stuck with gymnastics for this long because I love seeing kids
grow and gain new abilities in the sport. I have coached all sorts of athletes and have seen
many different types of personalities and skill levels.  My coaching style consists of teaching
each individual athlete uniquely, based on how they like to learn. I think teaching kids differently
helps the kids progress faster and see better results.

I've been with Kips for 11 years. I started as a recreational gymnast in the kindergym and worked my way up into the competitive stream and competed for 6 years. I started coaching recreational 2 years ago and now coach both competitive and recreational. I enjoy being able to motivate and push my athletes to work their hardest every practice to achieve goals and learn new skills.
