Meet our Awesome Staff
I am a current student at Boise State. I have 3 years of coaching experience in recreational and competitive gymnastics. I did gymnastics for 12 years growing up before dancing competitively for 5 years. My favorite event to coach is beam! I love to explore the outdoors in my free time, especially on the water with my friends and family. I am looking forward to graduating with my Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship Management in the spring of 2024 and continuing to coach gymnastics!
Shelly has been coaching since 1989. She has degrees from BSU in Social Science and History. Shelly loves dogs, traveling, being outdoors and spending time with family and friends.

I did gymnastics for 5 years 4 of those years being at bronco. After I stopped being a gymnast I started to coach. My favorite event to do was beam but my favorite event to coach is bars. In my free time I like to run, hang out with friends, and spend time with family. My plan for the future is to become an orthopedic surgeon.
I was a gymnast for 15 years! I’ve coached gymnastics for 6 years, 3 of those being at Bronco. I love coaching beam and bars! In my free time I like to spend time with my friends, watch reality TV, and spend time outside! I will be graduating this May from BSU and plan on continuing to coach for Bronco while pursuing a career in the criminal justice field.
I was a gymnast for over 10 years and I’ve coached gymnastics for 2 years! I currently attend BSU. In my free time I like to swim, play outside and go on adventures.

She competed at Bronco Elite from 2007-2016, where she trained with Lexi Walmer under Brandon Paine (who put up with her craziness and inflexibility on a daily basis…sorry Brandon!) She’s currently pursuing a degree in Elementary Education, and has a minor in Spanish. She loves working as a recreational gymnastics coach and summer camp counselor.
Sarah was a gymnast for 8 years and has coached for the last 3 in the Treasure Valley. She graduated from high school in 2022 and will be attending CWI in the fall of 2023. In her spare time she loves to hang out with friends and family or spend time working out of the gym.
Kristina (commonly known as Ktina around the gym) has been coaching gymnastics for 23 years, and has been at Bronco for 14! Here at Bronco she coaches levels 4-7. When she’s not coaching she loves spending time outdoors; camping, fishing, rafting, and hanging out with her nieces and nephews! Fun Fact: She grew up in Wisconsin, so she’s a huge Green Bay Packers fan!
Kalifornia was a junior olympics program gymnast for 6 years and loved her 3 years in a cheer program. She is coaching rec classes and our summer camp students. She graduated from CWI’s GED program and spends time at the gym and outdoors in her spare time.
After completing an interior design degree, Kheri started working for the US Forest Service as a Wildland Firefighter during the fire season and traveling the rest of the year. Her love for architecture and the outdoors came together and she returned to school, ultimately graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from Arizona State University.
Since moving to Boise with her family, Kheri works as a landscape designer in the Treasure Valley and coaches at Bronco Elite. Kheri loves to watch as the kids progress in their gymnastics abilities, including her 2 daughters, the excitement they have when learning new skills and the pride kids feel when they realize what they can accomplish.
When Kheri isn’t at the gym or designing outdoor living spaces, she loves to travel, and most anything outdoors with her family. She is ecstatic to be able to get back into the gym to practice and coach the sport she loves, once again.
