We continue our ASG Alumni Spotlight series, featuring former gymnasts and coaches who have all left their own little mark on ASG. It’s a fun way for current families to see the rich history of Atlanta School of Gymnastics and for alumni to catch back up with those friends (and coaches) they grew up making memories with. We have had a great response to those wanting to participate so hope you enjoy!

What lessons have you taken away from the sport of gymnastics?
Discipline and drive that I learned during my gymnastics career at ASG has lead me to be the best teacher I can be and to never quit. I always strive for the best and to give my best for those around me. The sport of gymnastics taught me those and many more lessons throughout the years.
