Keeley’s active childhood included competing in gymnastics, diving, track and field, and dance. After earning her bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Mexico, she moved to Spain and taught English there for three years. Returning to the States, she came to Montana to visit her family in Kalispell and decided to stay. Along with teaching Spanish at Stillwater Christian High School, she started working at Flathead Gymnastics Academy (FGA) as a developmental coach. A short time later, she was given the opportunity to buy the gym and is now entering year 8 of gym ownership!. Her favorite part of owning FGA is the continuous challenges and opportunities that teaching presents. She enjoys interacting with students and finding new ways to help them realize their strengths and encourage them to embrace the detailed effort necessary to grow and develop within the sport and life itself. She also enjoys focusing on creating a strong support system for athletes at FGA comprised of student, parent, and coach relationships working in unison for the benefit and success of each athlete. She loves seeing each gymnast progress in their own ways and at their own pace. As an owner and head coach, she challenges herself and her staff to continue to educate themselves in the sport of gymnastics so that FGA is able to provide the best instruction and education for all participating athletes. Outside of the gym, Keeley enjoys time with family, traveling, hiking and camping, snowboarding, and spending time with her husband, David, and their dogs Kohna, Lucy, and Shimba.
