Coach VanDeusen's passion for cheer started in Murrieta where she was a Pop Warner cheerleader.  Realizing her love for cheer, she continued on into high school and college. Coach VanDeusen's coaching experience began in 2009 where she coached the freshman, JV and Varsity teams at Lakeside High School in Lake Elsinore, CA .  She was an Education Specialist while she simultaneously ran the Cheer Program for 4 years. Coach VanDeusen began her teaching career in the SMUSD in 2015 where she taught Math at San Elijo Middle School. She then transferred for the 2016-2017 school year to San Marcos High and has been proud to be a Knight ever since!
