Our Amazing Coaches
If you need an experienced mom to talk with, stop by the front desk and say hi!
Throughout high school I coached preschool and recreational gymnastics at my home gym, Siouxland Gymnastics Academy. I then went on to the University of Iowa to study psychology. While away at college I couldn’t give up my passion for the sport, so I landed a coaching position. I coached team XCEL (levels bronze through diamond) for Iowa GymNest, in Coralville, Iowa. After living in Iowa City for 5.5 years, I decided to transfer to the University of South Dakota. I graduated from USD with my Bachelors Degree in Psychology, with a minor in Child & Adolescent Development. I continued to coach working with developmental team kids, as well as levels 3-10 back at my home gym.
I recently moved to Colroado. I am so excited to be coaching for Momentum Athletic Center. I am specializing in the Mojo Stars right now, and I cannot wait to prepare these talented kiddos for competitive gymnastics! My heart will always be with the sport of gymnastics and I am just not ready to give up my passion for coaching young athletes to be their best versions of themselves, physically and mentally.
If you see me around the gym make sure to stop and introduce yourself! I love meeting new people and making connections! I cannot wait to make an impact in your child’s life!
Competitive Cheer and School Cheer showed me how to be a great leader and overall shaped me into who I am today. My goal is to teach kids of any age, of any skill level that they are capable of ANYTHING they put their mind to. With good guidance and leadership comes skills, confidence, and spirit! It’s all about learning and gaining new skills while having fun!
Having spent 20 years as a gymnast and now entering her 3rd year coaching, Kayla has learned so many life lessons through the sport and is looking forward to spreading her passion, love, and knowledge of gymnastics to everyone she works with. No matter what age, level, or ability of an athlete, it is her goal to make gymnastics FUN while helping each gymnast reach her individual potential and achieve her goals!
Prior to this, I was a preschool assistant teacher for about 7 years, after being a stay at home mom during my kiddos elementary years. I love being around children and watching them grow in their knowledge through education as well as the everyday skills they learn through activities like Gymnastics.
I look forward to seeing you all around Momentum Athletic Center, it’s a wonderful place!
I strive to help all my students master the skills they want in a safe and fun manner!
Justine is from Dallas, Texas and began gymnastics when she was 9 years old in an after school program.

“I love the progress that can be made in gymnastics and tumbling and the significance of working with others. My goal is to always foster inclusion and help individuals discover their own talents.”
With nearly 7 years of coaching experience I have found my home. I love to be in the gym and be interactive with all of my athletes. I am very excited to be a part of the team at Momentum, and I look forward to sharing my gymnastics knowledge with them, and building strong, confident athletes.
