Allstar Cheer Coach
Ethi, age 42, is wife to Tumbling Coach Steven, and Mom to Allstar Cheer and Tumbling Coach Bailie, and daughter of Ms. Billie Jean. She has been a cheer and tumbling coach since September 2005 when Encore opened. She is a former ER Nurse and decided that watching and helping kids not only grow athletically, but mentally, is her passion.
She loves to see and celebrate the success of students as they reach goals and get new skills. She wants every child that walks through the doors at Encore to have a positive experience. She wants every child to know that Encore is not just teaching cheer, dance, and tumbling, but lifelong skills and helping build confidence and character.
Encore Allstars has become everything she intended it to be and more with help from a wonderful staff, amazing kids and families, and supportive husband and daughter...not just for all of the first place wins, national banners and trophies, and specialty awards...BUT because it is HOME to so many wonderful kids.
Ethi believes with hard work from students and positive instructors who love the kids, athletes will be able to achieve success in the gym and throughout life. She believes that Encore is not just a place where new skills are learned, it is a place of community where friendships turn into family. Ethi is credentialed in stunts, tumbling, and tosses. She, Steven, and Bailie attend clinics and conferences throughout the year with some of the best cheer and tumbling coaches in the industry to keep their skills and knowledge current.
