Helen has been involved with children and families since she was in high school. She graduated with a Bachelor degree in Psychology and a Master degree in Education. Growing up she loved tumbling and the way her body moves. She was on the gymnastics team in her early elementary years and was a part of her middle school's dance team. She has been coaching gymnastics for over three years and refers to it as a fun enjoyable sport that keeps her fit. Metro is a great addition to her life and allows her the opportunity to touch the lives of children with teaching and inspiring others through the sport of gymnastics. Outside of the gym, she spends most of her time working as a child development specialist for an agency in Salem. She also enjoys hanging out with her friends, shopping, reading, watching and playing basketball.
