Coach Mizani James-McDaniel
Hello! My name is Mizani James-McDaniel and I am so excited to be the head cheer coach here at Lincoln High School. After taking a break from the coaching world, I’m back and ready to support the spread the Lynx PRIDE at Lincoln! I cheered both in high school, for Garfield High School, here in Seattle and in college, for Bennett College, in North Carolina. I also served as the assistant coach for Garfield, from 2011 – 2014.
When I’m not coaching cheer, I am still passionate about helping people. Outside of cheer, I focus my time and energy on my resume writing business and working with the Girl Scouts. I love traveling, 14 countries and counting, and believe that immersing yourself into another’s culture can help spread empathy for other cultures. I am looking forward to embracing the environment and culture here at Lincoln!
