Emily began working at Gold Star in the summer of 2023, but has been coaching gymnastics since the year 2000. She was a gymnast herself, starting at age 3 and rising to compete Level 7.  She went on to graduate from University of California Santa Barbara in Dramatic Arts and is certified in CPR and First Aid.  Probably one of the coolest facts about Emily is that she was among the first students at Gold Star – actually tumbling in class the day the gym opened in 1996!
