How did you get involved with Judging?
In addition to doing gymnastics, while growing up I also loved watching gymnastics. I decided I wanted to be a judge one day, and then took the test in college as a way to stay involved with the sport.
How long have you been judging?
What is your favorite event to judge and why?
I don’t have a favorite – I’m happy judging any of them and I enjoy when I’m able to mix it up!
What is your favorite judging memory or experience?
One of my funniest judging memories is when Pat and I were judging Xcel Bronze – there was a group of cute little 5 yr olds (probably their first meet) and one of them didn’t start out far enough on the floor. She ended up doing the majority of her routine, right next to the white line, practically underneath our table. We had to lean forward and look over the edge of the table every time she was on the ground and then hurry and lean back so we didn’t bump heads with the girl when she stood back up. We were trying so hard not to laugh!
What are your other hobbies?
Hiking, rock climbing, being outdoors in general, travel, reading, and learning new languages
Tell me about your family? Kids? Pets?
I have been married for 3 years this month (March), no kids yet. I have two younger sisters who also live in Utah right now, and two dogs back at home with my parents in Texas.
Something most people don’t know about you!
I lived in France for almost two years as a kid and speak French!
