What inspired you to launch this business?

Together with the other owners of The Rise Gym, we have learned through our daughters’ involvement in gymnastics the extraordinary benefits that kids of all ages can obtain from movement arts such as gymnastics, ninja fitness and cheer. These include not only the immense physical benefits, including development of core strength, flexibility, balance and body awareness that are transferable to other sports and passions, but also the mental benefits, including the grit, determination, work ethic, resilience, sportsmanship and teamwork that are learned from higher-level classes and competition. The Rise Gym was launched to expand the opportunities for kids in our communities to gain the benefits of gymnastics, cheer and ninja training in a safe, fun and state-of-the-art facility with experienced and enthusiastic coaches.

What is one of your proudest moments?

I’ve been blessed with so many proud moments, especially when it comes to my family. But one of my proudest personal accomplishments, which helped shape my life and belief in the value of childhood sports, was earning an NCAA Division I college athletic scholarship as a member of the Virginia Tech Women’s Soccer Team.

What can one expect when visiting The Rise Gym?

A fun, positive and safe environment for learning gymnastics, cheer and ninja fitness, including amazing, inspiring coaches and a bright, new, state-of-the-art facility.

What do you enjoy doing in the South Bay when you are not working?

Watching my kids’ gymnastics practice, taking our dogs to the beach, and enjoying all the amazing things the South Bay has to offer!

How do you give back to the community? 

The Rise Gym supports local community groups and will be offering need-based scholarships to high-level, competitive gymnasts who qualify for our U.S. Junior Olympic teams.
