Lili began coaching at Gold Star in the fall of 2019, but has been part of the sport since she was four years old.  She has worked at neighboring clubs for the past several decades and now spends her days teaching at a local preschool.  She has a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from California College of Arts, and holds certifications in CPR & First Aid; and from USA Gymnastics, a Safety Certification, and Hands on Training for Preschool and Recreational Gymnastics.  Although Lili has trained countless gymnasts over the years, she is quite an accomplished athlete herself.  She was born in Vietnam, raised in Germany, and competed for the German National Gymnastics Team.
