Sammie is from Tacoma, WA, has tons of gymnastics and coaching experience! She attended Whitworth University and then Western Washington University, where she studied anthropology and ancient Greek. Sammie began teaching gymnastics at the end of her sophomore year of college up at Bellingham Bay Gymnastics. She taught all ages from 9 months to 12 years old, with a focus on pre-k and grade school classes. Later she began a demonstration team program and had tons of fun working with the kids and community!
After college she moved south and worked for 6 months at various Little Gyms before beginning her career as a flight attendant! She has just recently moved back to Washington from Boise and is still a flight attendant while also coaching at the gym!
