Elizabeth has been involved in the sport of gymnastics for nearly her entire life. After retiring from competition while in high school, Liz caught the coaching bug and never looked back! She coached at a local gymnastics club all through college, and upon earning her doctorate degree in occupational therapy from Creighton University, she decided to chase her dream to open a gymnastics club, where she could share her love of the sport with as many children as possible. In January of 2007 she founded Metro Stars Gymnastics with a grand total of 5 students. Things picked up from there, and by the year's end she had a growing program and was named the Nebraska Occupational Therapy Association's "Practitioner of the Year" for developing the Special Stars Program here at Metro Stars Gymnastics. Liz currently serves as the USA Gymnastics Nebraska State Chair, and she still loves sharing the sport of gymnastics with boys and girls of all ages! In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her four children, Katie, Juliette, Samantha, and Charlie, reading, and running.
