Mary Joe

I have been in gymnastics since the age of 5 years old and been involved in competitive gymnastics since I was 8, continuing on to coach & judge.  My experience and interest in the sport provides the flair and understanding successful maintenance of programs and the implications of new programs for all levels.  I currently sit in an elected position on the Illinois USAG State Committee.

I hope to continue to serve the professionals of Illinois.
