Team & Rec Coach
Hello there! My name is Emily "E" Gillis and I started gymnastics when I was 5 years old, but when I was 7 my history with Ginger began to unfold. When my family and I moved to Tennessee in 1997, I began taking gymnastics with Ginger as my coach - and Ginger hasn't been able to get rid of me since! ;) I competed at Intrigue throughout high school before competing at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater on the Warhawk Gymnastics Team. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Journalism, I moved to Atlanta where I worked as the Editorial Director of Inside Gymnastics magazine. In January 2015, I felt God tugging on my heart to move back to TN so here I am, coaching full-time and managing the MJ gym! I teach anyone from our parent-tot kids through the Team Intrigue girls and I'm also a CrossFit coach at 3 Star CrossFit, conveniently located right next door to our MJ gym!
