Ms. Kathy is the co-founder of the Kickin’ Flips Preschool Fitness Programs. She loved the sport of gymnastics long before television brought gymnastics to the forefront of athletic endeavor in 1972. Her training began in Buffalo, NY and she was a junior US champion. She also qualified, competed and earned bronze and silver medals in the National AAU Championships (1966,1967), gold and silver medals in the Pan American games (1967), a gold medal in the North American Gymnastics Championships (1971), Olympic Games (1968) and a gold medal in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (1971). True to her craft, Kathy teamed up with Kirt and Trish Galiano to create and implement Kickin’ Flips.
Through Kickin’ Flips, she is continuing to inspire our students with the gift of gymnastics. Kathy was simply a person who liked to learn, perform and win. Her motivation was pure, her training dedicated and her performances inspiring.
