I am the owner and Director of Prodigy All Stars. As an athlete my career began as a competitive gymnast for 8 years and a competitive cheerleader for 2. I then went to the University of Houston and graduated with a degree in Business Management. My husband and I started Prodigy All Stars in 2007 and we could not be happier! I feel so blessed to impact the lives of young athletes and teach them the ideals of life through a competitive sport. I believe all my athletes are "Prodigy's" and enjoy the process of watching and molding them into outstanding young adults.
I started completive cheerleading my junior year of High school for Texas Lonestar cheer company in 2000. After falling in love with the sport I started working at Cypress Academy from 2001-2002 for C.A.C. In addition I worked for American Cheer Power Traveling and doing camps and choreography throughout the summer from 2002-2005. When I graduated high school I wanted to try something new so I became “Shasta” the University of Houston Mascot for my freshman year of college. It only took a few games in 3-digit heat for me to realize it was not for me so the following two years I attended Kilgore Jr. College. While in east Texas I worked for a few smaller (2 cheer mats in a twirling studio) east Texas gym’s. We finished 3rd at NCA collegiate Nationals in 2004 and 2005. In 2006 I moved back to Houston and started working at Cheer Nation in Katy while finishing up school at U of H. I graduated in 2007 with a degree in Sports administration and Marketing and continued to work For Cheer Nation until the merger with Prodigy in April of 2009. I love what I do, and do what I love, and feel very privileged to be a positive influence on so many young lives.

I have been active with tumbling, cheerleading and the All-star atmosphere since I was a young girl with Cheer Nation All-stars. I also cheered two years at the University of Houston. I started coaching gymnastics, tumbling and cheer about six years ago. This is my second year with the Prodigy Family and I could never be happier! I LOVE this competitive sport as well as teaching it to the young athletes. I coach many level one teams throughout our competitive year, as well as Cheer Tots.
I began gymnastics at the age of 3, and continued for 9 years reaching level 8! After leaving Cincinnati Gymnastics Academy home to Amanda Borden and Jayce Phelps Olympic gold medalists, I took up power tumbling and won state titles on trampoline. Shortly after I began my cheer career in Indiana where I cheered for 4 years competing in Orlando, Fl. I then move to Texas and cheered at UofH. I was a UCA staff member for two years and then began coaching gymnastics! I've been a part of Prodigy since it started in 2007 and have produced many successful teams! I'm fun and outgoing, loud and sweet...oh and I love pink!

I've collegiately competed on a Large Coed Team and di individually partner stunting at Oklahoma City University (OCU), placing 2nd in both at NCA and USA College Nationals 2010. I also competed in 2011 on an All-Star Lvl 6 International Team, which placed second at NCA Allstar Nationals as well as medaling 3rd at Worlds. I formerly worked under American Cheer Association for 6 years (ACA) and trained athletes at Cypress Academy of Gymnastics and Prodigy All-stars for 4 years. At Prodigy, I started a flyer program that has impacted the program's routines & stunts, which lead to many NCA titles and placing at worlds.
I was a recreational gymast at Westwood Gymnastics Academy from 1999-2001. I then began cheering and coaching at Renegade Cheer. I also cheered at Mayde Creek High School in Katy ISD. From there I cheered for 2 years at Prairie View A&M University, then moved to Denton, Tx in to attend The University of North Texas. I cheered for 2 years at UNT and graduated with a B.A. in Engish and Sociology. While attending UNT I also worked and cheered at All-Star Gym Cougar in Carrollton with Coach Logan.

I have done outside choreography for schools around the U.S. and coached numerous National titles. I have been a member on the UCA staff for 6 years and was named Rookie of the Year my first year.
