Keri Quick Owner, Competitive Team Head Coach & Fitness Instructor
Keri's passion for gymnastics started when she was 4 years old. She began competing at the optional level when she was 7, through CARA gymnastics. She competed with CARA up until her 8th grade year in school, where she then competed as a Fort Morgan Mustang throughout high school and graduated there in 2004. She grew up loving and participating in dance starting at the same time she did gymnastics, as well as competed in high school with the track team doing pole vault. During her middle school years, her coaches asked her to help with the younger girls in both gymnastics and dance, and loved seeing them develop their skills. Once she graduated and went off to college, she coached in Greeley for a year. Keri graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Forensic Psychology in 2009 and received her Master’s degree in School Counseling in 2012. She was a School Counselor at Brush High School from 2013-2021.
