I am a 17 year old senior at Frontier Academy High School. I have 6 years of cheerleading background and the 2017-18 season will be my seventh consecutive year of cheerleading. My love for cheer began in sixth grade and has grown so much since then. This is my second year of being a coach for Colorado Eclipse and I am looking forward to learning even more about the all-star world and more about what it takes to be a coach for this industry. I love Colorado Eclipse because it’s a second home to me. Miss Demi always inspires me to reach for my dreams no matter how big they are. I love working for such an amazing company that teaches kids hard work and dedication.
