Melissa Johnson

Office Manager

I have been the Office Manager for DAG for over 7 years.  I have many duties here at the gym, including the administrative workings of the gym. ie; I schedule students for classes, keep the instructors updated on anything pertaining to their classes.  I help our Head instructor to create our sessions’ curriculum and themes and help support the Competitive Teams. I also help do intakes for our Rockets Program (our gymnastics program for students with special needs). I have been co-chairing our Autism Awareness Fair for 8 years.

I have been married almost 25 years and have 3 sons.

I first started here at DAG as a Mom over 10 years ago when my 2 eldest sons started to participate in the Rockets program, while my typical son was on a competitive Boys gymnastic team elsewhere.  Within a year of his Brothers being here at DAG, he switched gyms and started to Compete on DAG’s competitive Boys team, and shortly after he made the move, Coach Lewis (our owner) saw something in him and started him on the path to the Elite National Future Stars Boys Team. He competed for DAG from age 7 to age 15 1/2, his Brothers are still here participating in the rocket program.  So working here at DAG is like a working with family.
