All-Star Coach & Owner
Julia has been providing her community with an all-star cheer home at SEO for seven seasons now. She has a deeply routed background in cheer and gymnastics that spans more than 20 years, which is culminated by being a level nine gymnast and a two-time all-star cheer Worlds competitor!
She has been coaching cheer for more than ten years with quite an impressive resume. Under her tutelage, her SEO athletes have earned more than 45 first place championships, and placed second at NCA Nationals, The West Regional Summit and The Summit.
Julia is passionate about ensuring her athletes and their families feel like SEO is their home and hopes to leave a legacy behind that includes her gym having a winning Worlds team. She also wants to thank all of the amazing families and her staff for trusting in her and supporting her program.
Going into her second SEO season, Emme is our newest addition to the Sonic family! She comes to us with 13 years of cheer experience, which includes four trips to The Summit as an athlete. She has cheered in multiple gyms and uses the knowledge she gained in each one here at SEO.
Everyday we benefit from her having studied early childhood education in college, as she is involved with almost every team in our gym. Emme’s attention to detail, knowledge of the rules and score sheets, as well as her passion for stunting, are creating an environment where, she hopes, SEO will be known for their difficult and innovating stunts.
Her favorite thing about working at Sonic is getting to work with kids that are so
self-motivated and passionate, as well as truly feeling like the rest of the staff is her family.
Lead All-star Tumbling Coach
Melissa is joining us for her sixth season here at SEO. This season is a little different than the others, because we are finally getting her full time! This exciting news we want to share because this means that we can have her laser sharp focus working with all of our athletes, at all levels.
Melissa has ten years of gymnastics experience. While getting her Medical Assistant Certification, she also honed her tumbling coaching skills, while being mentored for five years by an Olympic Gold Medalist for China.
She is excited to teach perfection in the basics of tumbling and bring meticulous detail to our SEO tumbling program.
Her favorite part of working at SEO is that the culture is unmatchable. She enjoys having a leader that cares about her staff whole heartedly and whom spreads her passion for the program and the sport like wildfire.
Administration & Digital Media
This is Becs’ fourth season working at SEO. She is fully qualified in all things administration, by way of serving 20 years in the United States Air Force, and is
self-taught in digital media and photography.
While her tasks do not include coaching, she has a love of Sonic in her heart and has been committed to providing whatever assistance the gym needs in order to keep tasks and events flowing smoothly.
Her favorite part of working at SEO is the “Sonic Culture” that has been created by Coach Julia and the other staff members, as well as getting to interact with the EPIC bunch of parents we have.
