Co-Director of Flagstaff Preschool
Chief Operator of Flagstaff Gymnastics
Hi, I'm Shawna. I have lived in Flagstaff since I was three years old. This is a community that I have lived in and learned from for so long I feel blessed to be giving back to it! I started gymnastics at just two years old and trained right here at Flagstaff Gymnastics through level 8. I am a two-time Arizona State Champion; first taking the overall title for level 5 in all age divisions and then Level 6 for my own age division. I have always loved to spend my summers traveling and have trained at several different camps throughout the country. In addition to training in gymnastics I pursued my love of dance with the Royal Academy of Dance and Tempe Dance Academy. I have danced with the Boston Ballet, the American Ballet Theater, the Malibu Ballet, and the RAD Ballet in Long Beach, CA. I was one of three in the nation to take the RAD's prestigious Solo Seal Examination. With all of these accomplishments and training, my love of coaching is second only to my family. In 2011 my husband and I had our first child, Jason. Jason has been such a wonderful blessing to us and has only increased my love of children!! I am blessed to have the privilege of pursing my dream of working with children! I have a passion for inspiring little minds and love working with children. When I began coaching in 2005, I fell in love with preschoolers! I have seven years’ experience working with children and love every moment of it. God gave me a dream of starting a Christian preschool here in Flagstaff that offered a solid foundation of Biblical Truths that would follow our children throughout childhood into their adult lives. In 2010, God helped me achieve my dream, and I assisted in the founding of Flagstaff Christian Preschool. I have since had two more handsome boys, Troy and Ethan that have added to the love and desire of children.
