- I was a figure skater before I was a gymnast, but I haven’t stepped back on the ice since I was 7.
- I am bilingual and I speak Russian fluently.
- I studied abroad in Spain in 2019.
My passion for rhythmic gymnastics started when I was 8 years old, after I quit figure skating due to an injury. I trained in gymnastics from the ages of 8-14. I was a competitive gymnast for 4 years, one year in group and the other three as an individual rhythmic gymnast. At 15 I became a coach and I have been coaching ever since for the past 6 years. Besides gymnastics coaching, I am pretty busy with getting my Master’s degree at Baruch College in Marketing Management. One day I hope to use my knowledge of marketing and economics(from my bachelors degree) in order to start my own business involving gymnastics. I hope to cater to all ages and genders and make this sport more accessible for everyone no matter what their financial situation is. I cannot imagine my life without gymnastics and I cannot wait to begin teaching here at togetherhood.
