My favorite memory of Natalia is watching her grow into the person she is today. I met Natalia when she was just two years old, Natalia came to my house five days a week for daycare.

Natalia then grew up and went off to school. I started coaching at Pius in 2011 which was Natalia's freshmen year, and I am so blessed that I have been able help coach Natalia throughout her four years on the cheer team.
