Meet us Monday! Meet Stephanie Meadow!

Name: Stephanie Meadow

Place of birth: Long Grove, IL

Schooling: Bachelors in Sociology from Rutgers University

Gymnastics Experience: Stephanie was a very energetic child, so her parents enrolled her in a pre-school gymnastics class when she was three. Her passion for gymnastics only grew stronger as she continued practicing and reaching higher levels. She competed at Stevenson where she became the first gymnast from the School to place in an Illinois State meet. Her hard work and dedication earned her an athletic scholarship to Rutgers University where she competed all four years of Division I gymnastics.

Coaching Experience: 19 years of coaching competitive gymnastics

Levels taught at VHG: Team

Life: Stephanie knew early on that she could teach young gymnasts not only the physical skills they would need to compete, but also the importance of keeping a positive attitude, building confidence, having fun, and sharing compliments with teammates. For the past 19 years, she has coached gymnastics at the highest of competitive levels and knows that all gymnasts are inspired by their coaches, staff, parents, and teammates. She and her family (husband, Adam, daughter, Olivia, and son, Austin) live in Buffalo Grove.
