Miranda Murphy just started off her second summer here at Mancino and is a valued member of our marketing and administrative teams. Not adverse to creating mailing lists and cleaning out file boxes, Miranda’s true talent is educating our staff on the “hands-on” details of the gymnastics industry.
Miranda provided her bio details below:
“ I am currently a senior and captain of the gymnastics team at Rhode Island College! I have been doing gymnastics for 14 years and competing for 10 of those years. I also started coaching women’s gymnastics at the age of 14 and have been doing so for the past 7 years.
I started gymnastics when I was 7 years old. I just asked my mom one day to sign me up and here we are, 14 years later. When I was 7 and 8, I did gymnastics at a gym that is no longer in business and from age 9 to 18, I trained at Spirit Gymnastics in North Wales, PA.
I love training all 4 events in gymnastics but my favorite is either bars or beam, depending on the day. I have always been very passionate about gymnastics and have always loved how different of a sport it is. I love how there are so many variations of different skills you can learn and routines to put together. I also love how while it is a very individual sport, it is also very much team oriented, especially in college.
I went to Rhode Island College in 2015 to compete for their gymnastics team and to pursue earning my degree in Marketing. I was named captain of the team my sophomore year and named the team’s MVP this past season. I will now be entering my third year as a team captain and my fourth and final year at Rhode Island College.”
