Tami started gymnastics at the age of 12 in an after-school program. She fell in love with the sport and later found a competitive gym, and competed up to Level 6. She started teaching gymnastics when her coach left the gym, and the gym needed a replacement. It did not take long for Tami to realize how much fun it was to teach and inspire kids. She has been teaching gymnastics since 2004. She started her studies in the medical field, but soon realized her passion for coaching and now hopes to someday open her own gym.
