Sara has been involved in gymnastics for 20 years, first as an athlete, then as a coach and now as a judge. Because of the hours she spent in the gym and at school, Sara was forced to balance not only on the beam, but also in the classroom. Gymnastics taught her patience, independence, teamwork, and organizational and social skills.
Sara also learned math by doing such things as counts of eight, sets of 10, counting deductions and averaging scores. Now an auditor for a major accounting firm, Sara credits gymnastics for teaching her lifelong skills that she relies on every single day.
