Our Instructors


Valerie Mattingly

I love kids because of their humor and their desire to work hard. My favorite color is yellow; I have 3 brothers; babysitting experience; and 12 years of cheerleading!

Experience: 12 years of Cheer


Nicole Brandenburg

I am currently a junior at Notre Dame Academy and have 10 plus years of cheer and gymnastics experience, as well as dance. I absolutely love to work with ASA kids because it puts a huge smile on my face and theirs! As well as my involvement at ASA, I am also apart of many clubs and organizations at NDA! I look forward to teaching your child!


Candice Dillon

Currently a Senior at Highlands High School. My favorite color is purple and I love pizza. Outside of work I am usually with my friends or spending time with my family.

It's important to me that every student I have in class is making improvements and working hard to reach their goals.

I have been cheering for quite a few years, which makes my job not only more understanding but enjoyable as well.

Experience: 12 years of cheer


Abby Jenkins

I am so excited to be a part of All-Star Academy and have the ability to share my passion of gymnastics/cheer with the kids and get to know them.

I am a student at NKU and in my free time I love to be with my friends and family. I am also a huge Disney nerd. 

Experience: 15 years of gymnastics and cheer. Previous instructor at Skip 'n' Flip.
