About the Founder

Samantha did gymnastics for 22 years. She grew up in Indiana and became the youngest member of the USA National Team at age 12. From then, she was traveling overseas competing for Team USA. Among those competitions, she was part of the World Championship gold medal winning team that made history and the following year became an Olympic silver medalist for Team USA.

After the Olympics, she accepted a full ride scholarship to UCLA where she became a 3X NCAA Champion and 17X All-American. Her love for sports continued as she became a sports broadcaster for the PAC-12 Networks and has since moved to ESPN and NBC.

In college, She earned the Bruin Leadership award, which inspired her to create Beam Queen Bootcamp. It happens to be a mix of her favorite things: motivating young gymnasts, traveling, and BEAM! She loves helping gymnasts accomplish their goals and always reminds her BQBC gymnasts that they can do anything they set their mind to. Samantha is the founder/CEO and is extremely proud of how this community continues to grow.

Content and Community Manager

Sydney did gymnastics for 21 years. She grew up training in Georgia and then continued her career at Iowa State, competing collegiately for 5 years. During Sydney's time at ISU, she discovered her passion for videography and immediately knew that video was what she wanted to pursue full time. Sydney worked closely with Iowa State’s athletics for 2 years, where she had opportunities to film with each sport, as well as NFL and NBA teams.

Once graduating college, it was no question that finding a job that combined both gymnastics and videography was a must. She started working as a freelancer with Beam Queen in 2021, became full- time by the end of the year and has never looked back!

Sydney loves coffee, Aritzia, traveling, and sushi. She has a Tik Tok with over 9M views, studied abroad, and is adopted.

Lead Operations

Haylee began her love for gymnastics when she flipped herself out of her crib. Her (smart) parents put her in the sport as soon as they could.

Her love for flipping pivoted to cheerleading and then she began coaching All-Star. Haylee used her transferrable skills as an athlete to achieve excellence at the University of Florida majoring in Marketing and Retail Management. From there, She moved to Austin, TX and began her career in tech working for big corporations including Google.

Haylee fell in love with the Beam Queen brand and reached out to get involved. One opportunity lead to the next and she is now our full-time operations lead with her fingers dipped in all projects at Beam Queen.

Haylee loves morning workouts. She loves coffee, has never broken a bone, and is obsessed with LinkedIn.

Other facts: loves Publix’s chocolate chip cookies and anything chocolate.

What else do we offer?

BQBC For Coaches BQBC For Parents
BQBC For Coaches

Your gymnasts can’t have all the fun here, right?! As much as I want them to learn my beam curriculum, it’s just as important (if not more) that I share with YOU what I’ve learned along the way. In terms of technique, simple is better. Simple corrections, simple drills… just keep it simple. This is why I’ve created the TRIPLE THREAT or the 3 rules of beam, so gymnasts can understand the foundation of beam and when things go wrong, it’s just easy to remember.

I also want to share my relationship with my coach. It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty close. We had the healthiest coach/athlete relationship and the best part about it was he knew when to push me and when to pull back. He pushed me to my potential and believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. I mean c’mon, how do you convince an athlete who was once too afraid to do a roundoff back handspring that she would be learning a double double?!

My philosophy is “the more knowledge & information you know, the better you can be as a coach, as an educator, as a mentor, and as a person.” If my stories or perspective help you in some way, great…that’s the point! I’ve put together a specific coaches curriculum- explanation of what your athletes will be learning, important qualities of a healthy coach/athlete relationship, and a chance to meet with me at the BQBC event to ask me any questions you’d like. So, head on over to the registration site to sign up for the closest location near you- Availability is limited!(You must also be SafeSport Certified to sign up!)

BQBC For Parents

Did you know that we have a Parent Talk section of our online community, The Club?!

Yep, we wanted to launch something special just for parents. We believe gymnastics is the hardest sport in the world, so we know it's equally as tough to navigate as a parent.

There is no doubt that gymnastics is a tool for building champions. We believe champions are gymnasts who work hard and persevere, they may not always be on the top of the award stand, but they are kind, caring, compassionate, intelligent, incredible, young people. After all, isn’t that what we want – to insure our daughters are good people and will be our future leaders?...

So, check out our videos on how to help your gymnast gain confidence or watch our skill videos that will surely help you impress your daughter with correct skill names!

We've also started launching live digital events JUST for parents, so don't forget to check our digital events tab to see what we have coming up! Lastly, please let us know if you have specific topics, questions, or anything we can do to help steer you in the right direction of this crazy world called GYMNASTICS!

Look where we've been...

Our registration site will be released THIS Sunday for Club Members during our live digital event!
