Veronica Seavey, who attended nursing school with Tkacs shared her disbelief to WJAR.
“It just didn't seem like something that she would do and she had a daughter who is that age,” said Seavey.
“I just had a baby thee and a half months ago and she was my nurse at Women & Infants. You just can’t trust anybody.”
In a statement, Cheerfactor, a Rhode Island gym where Tkacs’ daughter trains revealed that Tkacs never coached there.
“Please be advised that Alyshia Tkacs has never coached, provided instruction or been employed in any capacity by Cheerfactor or any of its affiliated gyms or programs. Her daughter is a participant, and that is her only affiliation with the program, as a parent of an all-star cheer athlete,” the gym said.
