Springboard has helped me so much in my pageant journey. Robin and Emerie make an excellent team and I always leave the studio feeling confident in myself and my abilities. I have become a more well-spoken and poised individual thanks to the help of Springboard!

I started working with Robin when I was 7 years old. She has helped me grow so much over the years. I am more confident when getting on stage and have done so much better. What I've learned from Robin has helped me in other areas of my life as well. The springboard studio is beautiful and easy to get to. Being a part of Springboard Studios is like being a part of a family. I love Springboard studios and know I'm in the best hands!

I have been sending my girls to Robin for the last couple years and the growth that I have seen in their confidence and ability is amazing. The skills that Robin and her team are teaching my girls will last long after their pageant days. My girls and I love the atmosphere because they treat you like family. Another thing that I like, is they are not afraid to push my daughters out of their comfort zones so they are able to grow, but they do it in a way that makes my daughters want to push further and excel.

My daughter, a princess at the time, began working with Springboard in 2015. Robin and Emerie are so knowledgeable and can really nuance those little things that make the difference in placing high. My daughter won state and national titles with Springboard coaching. I also admire them for their professionalism, integrity and character. I trust them with my daughter and know they will always act in my daughter's best interest and be positive role models.

I have been working with Robin and Emerie for almost 4 years now, and I can’t imagine my life without them. When I first started working with them I did not know a single thing about the pageant world and now I have competed on both state and national stages. I have grown so much in the time I have worked with them and I can honestly say I would not be the confident woman I am today without them! There’s a reason people come from all over to work with them, they are simply the best.

My daughter has been working with both Robin and Emerie for about 5 years. We new absolutely nothing about pageants and they showed us the way! They have helped my daughter blossom into a well mannered young lady. They have taught her not only pageant skills but life skills that she will be able to use in any situation. She is no longer a shy girl and is the first person to help. This is all due to the help of Robin and Emerie. They are family and treat everyone like family. My daughter would not be as successful without their help!

The Springboard team has always been my biggest support for everything in and out of pageantry. They are very passionate about helping all women to succeed and find the best version of themselves. I always feel ready and confident whenever I walk into an interview because of their professional guidance for any interview situation. Not only have they provided me with interview help, they have helped me to grow in all areas of pageant competition including evening gown, swimsuit and on stage question. They have also always been my first choice every time I need perfect hair and make up! Whether it be for one day or a whole week they are always there to make sure I feel prepared and look my best! Thank you Springboard for everything you do and for being a source for women to grow into the best version of themselves!

I have been working with Robin, Faith and Emerie for years now, and they have positively impacted my pageant career and life in a way that is hard to put into words! Because of their knowledge, kind-hearted nature in coaching and care they demonstrate every coaching experience is so positive and fun, it’s easy to forget its “working.” They truly develop a relationship with their clients based on a common interest in pageants, and I’m quite thankful to have them all as role models in my life. Thanks to them, I’ve won two state titles and have grown into a confident, put-together and giving young woman!

I began working with Emerie as a 16 year old girl about 3 years ago not knowing a single thing about pageants or how to even walk in heels. Through time and patience Emerie helped me to learn the way of walking in heels, but also helped me to believe in myself and embrace all of who I was. Coaches aren’t meant to change who you are, they’re meant to help highlight the things you’re good at, and make you confident in the true person you are. That’s what Emerie and Robin did for me, as well as allowed me to form an amazing deeper than just coaching friendship with them. After working with many various make up artists, Emerie was the first one to ever do my face for my first photoshoot. Every time I have my make up done, I go to Emerie when I can because she knows my face so well and has the ability to switch it up and make me feel confident wherever I go- a state fair, pageant, or even college formal. Sometimes it’s takes awhile because Emerie and I have such a fun personal relationship we have too much fun and can get distracted while I’m sitting in her chair even.

I love working with Springboard, Robin, Emerie, and Faith are amazing! In the past two years they have taught me a lot about pageantry and myself. The skills they have taught me, not only have helped me excel in pageantry but are skills that I will be using for the rest of my life. When I'm coaching with them, it doesn't feel like work, it feels like a fun and caring environment. I'm excited to continue to working with Robin and her team!

I can’t say enough about Robin Gifford, owner and coach at Springboard. She is not only my daughter’s coach, but has become a new friend to us. Robin is so positive in her teachings to my young daughters. My daughter’s have so much fun and are excited to go to their coaching sessions and see Robin. Springboard has taught my girls poise, confidence, and interview skills that at their young ages of 9 and 7, most girls don’t exhibit. These skills are setting my daughters up for success in years to come, and I can’t thank the team at Springboard enough for helping me with this!

Robin, Emerie, and Faith are incredible individuals to work with! I’ve worked with Springboard for several years now, traveling several hours and states away to work with them. Whether I’m competing in pageants, prepping for an interview of some kind, or just in need of a helping hand; these ladies always show their gratitude and commitment to providing a positive experience. I’ve not only learned and gained various skills through springboard, but I’ve grown as a person. They provide a true since of comfort and family, on and off the stage, while always making me feel my best. I’m incredibly happy to know such amazing people who offer an even more amazing coaching experience. I highly recommend this team to anyone looking to further your pagenatry and communication skills!
