My Biography

Hi my name is Margie and I started gymnastics when I was 8 years old. Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't. This year has been the hardest year mentally and physically. I love to challenge myself and brave my fears. Not sure that I have a favorite event, and vault has never been my friend; however I am working hard to see some improvement on beam and bars. After ripping two tendons in my wrist just before Regionals, I am proud of earing 2nd All Around at Regionals. This journey is only possible because of great coaches and a gym that believes in me.

My Goals
  • 2018 - My goal for this season is to compete Level 9. I am so close, I have most of my skills mastered and am working diligently to clean them up. However that is just a stepping stone my 5 year goal is qualify for Elite and be awarded a college scholarship and get to compete all 4 years of college!!! My dream is to be a Florida Gator or attend UCLA, might as well dream big, right?
My Accomplishments
  • 2016 Level 7 America's Top 100 - Beam 9.800
  • 2017 Level 8 America's Top 100 - Floor 9.750
My Skills
  • I was never good at vault, and never learned the Tsuk vault, in fact I started with the Yurchenko pike vault. By learning this difficult vault it forced me to learn how to be a better vaulter I had to learn to run, block, and face my fears. It will never be my best event, but I am getting better and better each season. Each year my tumbling seems to get stronger and stronger and my best event is beam.
Some of My Favorite Things
  • Since I started glitz pageants as a small child it is no surprise that I love to model and get all dressed up. I have been lucky enough to film for MTV, 90210, and a couple of other small projects. If I had more time, I would love to model for living.
Fun Facts About Me
  • I started gymnastics so late because I never thought to do gymnastics. In fact the only reason why I started taking lessons was to learn a back handspring... why?? Because I needed that special skill for my routines as I competed in glitz beauty pageants across the country !! Would you believe, I have made it to level 8 and am almost ready for level 9 and I can't climb the rope without using my legs and I still can't do a handstand or a press handstand?
