Ellen began coaching at Gold Star in the fall of 2021, but she has been in the sport since she was seven. She trained on the East Coast and rose to compete at Level 10 – the highest level before the Olympic team! She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science from Harvey Mudd College, and spends her days working in one of our Silicon Valley tech companies.  Although she has devoted her days to coding and software development, her love continues to be gymnastics and her adorable puppy named Niko – who we suspect Ellen has taught to cartwheel with perfect form!
