OWNER AND TEAM DIRECTOR
Julia began gymnastics at the age of two while growing up in Newton. She began with recreational classes and then started competing at the age of six, continuing to compete until she entered high school at 14. She attended high school in Cambridge at BB&N and began coaching gymnastics soon after when she turned 15. She came to GAB in 2019, and when the previous owner retired, she took over in June of 2022. She absolutely loves being part of this special community, and is very excited to have the opportunity to help the gym grow as the new owner.
