President/ CEO

Phone-  (716) 864-9035

I started Lightnings in 2004 with 5 cheerleaders with the goal of building self esteem in young ladies, and to build a environment of healthy competition and team building. Since then, Joell is celebrating 20 years and has grown the gym to be a successful D2 program with over 100 athletes. In addition to the everyday operations,  Joell is behind the scenes coordinating Competitions, Spiritwear, Uniforms for our athletes and coaching our Tiny athletes.

"My goal is to have an All-star gym where people call home. Every athlete should feel valued and contribute"    Joell

This will be my 7th year, and it is one of my favorite things in the world. My favorite part of cheer is teaching tumbling and dancing. I know I will be cheering my entire life and can't wait to coach my own team someday. When I'm older, my dream is to be in Fashion Design. I'm a very bubble person and some people might say I'm a little shy. My favorite color is yellow, and I love watermelon. I absolutely love kids, and can't wait for what the future holds!
