Nadine has lived in Spokane since 2006 and now considers it her forever home. She loves the people, opportunity, outdoors and community of the Intermountain Northwest.

She enjoys fitness events, cooking, travel, field trips, “behind the scene” tours, silly costumes, critters large and small, and positively impacting the lives of children.

Nadine started coaching gymnastics at 14 years old, and it remained her passion as a “fun, side gig” prior to becoming a manager, then owner of Spokane Gymnastics in 2010.

Along with an incredible team of dedicated coaches, Nadine grew Spokane Gymnastics from a small program with 125 students and 8 part-time coaches in a 7,000 s.f. building to recently having 82 members of her crew serving 2200 students in a 30,000 s.f. facility, now known as “Spokane Gymnastics Argonne Village.” While the emergence of COVID caused the sudden temporary closure of her gymnastics club, Nadine is determined to serve her staff, kiddos, families, community, and industry with the same creativity, enthusiasm, and collaboration that she built her program on.

The process started before the emergence of COVID, but Nadine purchased another local gymnastics club in spring 2020 and is opening the 17,000 s.f. “Spokane Gymnastics Pines” facility on June 1. Nadine hopes to reopen the Argonne Village facility in phases, starting in July.

A proud Rotarian, Nadine also serves as a board member of Embrace Washington, Children FIRST, and Greater Spokane Incorporated. Nadine is most famous for her “Handstands around the World!”
