She was captain of her high school cheerleading squad at Lake City Christian School, and went on to cheer for a year in college at Hyles-Anderson College in Indiana.
For 32 years, she has either cheered herself, coached middle school cheer, or been a cheer mom or coach! That's a lot of cheerleading, ha,ha!! But there's always more to learn, and she enjoys learning from her fellow coaches.
