Courtney coaches our highest level gymnasts on our Girls Artistic Optional team, but has been with Gold Star since 2000 teaching in all aspects of the company. She began coaching in high school, working her way through Stanford by assisting the Stanford Team. Courtney competed in gymnastics through Level 9 (just two steps below the Olympic Level), then went on to study dance for six years. Through her own training plus more than twenty years of coaching experience, Courtney prides herself on creating a fun yet hard-working atmosphere for our advanced gymnasts, and has helped lead the team to success after success. She is Safety Certified from U.S.A. Gymnastics, certified in CPR and First Aid, and holds a National Team Coach Certification. She is a wonderful role model having earned both her Bachelors and Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford. We welcome her with open arms for any amount of time she can give to our students as we now share her with her two beautiful children. Gold Star is undeniably better with Courtney here.
