Each month, Twisters recognizes one outstanding member of our Twisters family, whether it’s a gymnast, coach or staff member, who is doing great things both inside and outside of the gym.

This month we are proud to highlight one of our amazing coaches, Joanna Davis, who not only shares her passion and expertise for gymnastics in the gym day in and day out, but she also shares her valuable time serving the homeless on a weekly basis through an organization called “The Soup Kitchen.” Joanna is a role model not only for how she positively impacts her students, but also for sharing her time, generosity and big heart with others who are less fortunate. Joanna, we are proud to call you a member of our Twisters family!

“I started gymnastics at a really young age and competed until I was 14 years old. I have always loved the sport! When I went to high school I joined the track team as a sprinter and a pole-vaulter. Even though I loved track and field during high school, I had to find a way back into the sport of Gymnastics, Coaching. I have been coaching gymnastics for 10 years, and most of it has been spent coaching my favorite events, Vault and Bars. I graduated from Kennesaw State University in Georgia with a degree in Sport management.

Outside of coaching, I enjoy going to the beach, hiking, and spending time with people! One thing that brings me the most joy is serving at “The Soup Kitchen” on Tuesdays. The soup kitchen is a place/house where the homeless can come and eat a meal, get a haircut, and get toiletries and clothes to help them throughout the week. I enjoy spending time with them because they are so authentic and have the kindest hearts.” -Joanna Davis
