"Jena coached me for 7 years. She pushed me to win many blue ribbons and medals. In 2012 the team made it to USAIGC nationals where I won 1st place on vault, beam, floor, and the AA, and 3rd place on bars. More recently, at the New Jersey USAIGC Silver State Meet, I won 1st place AA thanks to her coaching.
Despite the sport, Jena was always a great person to talk to and was more than just a coach. As I got older she was much easier to relate to and that made it more fun to go to practice and work even harder. My freshman year of High School my team won counties and in my sophomore year I was MVG (Most Valuable Gymnast). I'm looking forward to where my gymnastics will take me in the coming years."
"Jena played a big part in Annika's success in both gymnastics and dance. She placed 4th All Around in Level 4 NJ Gymnastics States Competition. Annika was also crowned Miss Petite KAR ( Kids Artistic Revue Dance Competition) getting the highest score in her solo dance last 2013. Annika's passion, determination and commitment are the traits that her coach, Jena has passed on to her. The constant motivation from a coach/teacher is the best gift any student athlete could ask for. Thank you, Jena"

"Lexie started training with Jena when she was 5 years old and in the past three years has placed first all-around in meets in New Jersey, Virginia, Delaware and Maryland. Jena's supportive coaching style and the close bond they developed gave Lexie the confidence to excel and go on to medal at both Level 3 and Level 4 State meets."
