WELCOME Coach Amirah Boyd!
I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and just moved to New Jersey in May. I started gymnastics when I was 3 years old and did JO USAG gymnastics up until level 10. During my gymnastics career, I obtained qualifications for regionals and national championships. I was recruited for acrobatics and tumbling in my senior year of high school by Presbyterian College.
I competed all four years at the Division 1 school where I obtained my degree in psychology with a minor in athletic coaching. Currently, I am the head acrobatics and tumbling coach at Caldwell University located in Caldwell, NJ. I am in my first season here and am so excited for the things to come!
