"Cheerleading is my life! My other passion is food; I love cooking and eating healthy foods," Miss Suzette says. "The best part about working at Jump Start is the kids. Every day they make me laugh, work so hard to get their skills down, and come to class with a smile on their face. Second best thing is the people I work for and with. They rock; they make it the best place to be for the kids and for me as an employee. I love working at Jump Start!"
