Kimberly Shafer 

Kimberly has been involved in the gymnastics, dance and cheerleading industries since she was just three years old.  While gymnastics was her first love (where she was a Level 6 Sectional's champion and training level 7), cheerleading stormed into her life and created a passion that she has never been able to walk away from.  As an athlete, she has competed at all levels of our sport in both the all-star and collegiate divisions.  A 3-time Worlds competitor, the highlight of her career was winning the 2011 IASF Nation's Cup for the United States with her International Open All Girl team, Fire & Ice Whiteout.  Her coaching career started when she was just 14 years old, and she has coached at all ages and levels since.  Kimberly attended Point Park University where she received her degree in Mass Communications and Journalism, then went on to complete her Master's degree in Business Management from Fitchburg State University. When she isn't in the gym, she can be found working for her family's property management company, spending time with her husband and their two children, or going to concerts and meeting her favorite musicians!

Beth has had a forever love of cheerleading! She was an all-star cheerleader for 15 years competing in levels 3 - 6. Her passion for cheer grew even bigger when she was offered a coaching position. This will be the start of her 10th year as an all star coach! The highlight of her cheerleading journey wouldn’t be all of the banners, jackets, and medals.. but instead, watching her athletes perform a routine that they are proud of and coming off the mat with a smile on their face! Outside of cheerleading, Beth can be found as a dental assistant at Drake Orthodontics. Fun Fact about Beth - she is an avid Patriots fan!!
