Life in a Leo Episode 4: Interview with Cheryl Gambuti, gymnastics renaissance woman

Welcome to our 4th blog post and podcast episode. We got to interview Cheryl Gambuti. Cheryl was a gymnast in the 80's from Southern California who made it all the way to the elite level in just 6 years in the sport. Cheryl moved to NJ after college where she became a judge because of her ability to learn the routines so quickly and her vast understanding of gymnastics. Cheryl later had three kids and her oldest became a gymnast, competing as a level 10 for Northstars and now assistant coaching at Temple University.  In addition to experiencing gymnastics from a gymnast, a judge and a parents perspective, Cheryl enjoys working as a meet director! When you listen, you will find out why this is a passion of hers.

We also want to thank Taylor for sending us her best thing happening in the gym this week! Congrats Taylor on your giants.  That's such a great accomplishment.
