Update (May '16):
Hello Beaver Nation! I got married on May 24th, 2014 in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, to the love of my life Matthew! We also had a daughter born on May 29th 2015. Currently I am a team coach for our level 7-10 optional team at my family's club gym Wildfire Gymnastics. My husband coaches our level 3-5 compulsory team. We recently bought our first house! Living the dream!
Memories of OSU Gymnastics:
It was the best 4 years of my life! My gymnastics experience at OSU was amazing. I will never forget those 4 years in Corvallis. My best memories are with my teammates and the experiences that we shared together. OSU set me up for success and I will be forever grateful. I met some of my very best friends at school and they will be my friends forever.
Update (July '11):
Work: After graduation I started my own graphic design business called Ten.0 Design. My business is currently contracted out full time by an aerospace company and I am their graphic designer/web designer. It's a fairly new aerospace company, so I am learning and growing with it. It's exciting, new, and I love it!
I also work for my dad's gym, Wildfire Gymnastics. I am the level 4 bars and vault coach and also bars and vault coach for level 7- 10's. It's great to still be involved in the sport and especially at Wildfire which is ranked the #10 women's program in the nation!
Family: The family is doing great! My little sister Hayley, who also attended OSU (cheerleading for one year) is currently going to film school in Los Angeles to be a movie director. I also live with my best friend (Nicole) who I met in West Dorm freshman year. She was an EXSS major at OSU and she moved down to California with me and is the Manager at Wildfire Gymnastics.
