Margi Beaver

Partner- Management and Finance


As one of the partners of Hollywood Cheer and Tumble, I wanted to first say that I believe every child has a chance. Every child has different needs, talents, personalities, and outlooks on what life means to them, and it is important that we as adults recognize that. My job at Hollywood Cheer and Tumble are to make sure the kids get everything they need and more. Training and working with kids goes beyond what they learn in the class. I myself and Hollywood Sports Center staff hope to make a positive impact on each child. I hope to give each child the ability to succeed, and the confidence that perhaps they were once lacking. If I'm able to make a difference in at least one child's life, then I know I've done my job.
