Kerstin Cornell fell in love with gymnastics when her mom foolishly rented the Nadia Comaneci biopic to keep her entertained while she had chicken pox. Since that time she has not be able to keep herself away from the sport for more than a few months at a time. As a child, she trained at what is now Geddert’s Twistars gymnastics club in Lansing, Michigan where she competed through level 9. She began coaching recreational classes and pre-team shortly after retiring from competition. She also coached everything from pre-school classes to team in San Francisco, California. She came to New Hampshire to attend law school in the fall of 2011 and, thankfully, found Flipz the next spring. She is currently a USAG Instructor Member and instructs pre-team through optional beam and floor.
