A nurse by trade, Chicoine transitioned into a business owner of ICONIC ALLSTARS, a competitive Allstar cheer facility, formerly known as Cheer Alliance, located in St. Charles, IL.
ICONIC ALLSTARS provides a sport activity for children of all ages and levels, as an activity that stresses the importance of team players and individual goals.
Chicoine said that she and her two daughters, Melanie and Jessica, were involved with cheer for 7 years at Cheer Alliance. When the opportunity presented itself at just the right time, she took over the business in its 11th season. She relished in her new venture and rebranded the name to make the business her own.
“I have come to realize that this has always been my passion and I am proud of what I have accomplished,” added Chicoine. She will share her enthusiasm about starting her own business and nothing that “it is never too late to start your own business”.
In addition, Chicoine started the not-for-profit Cheer Alliance-Together Strong Foundation (CATS) to fund raise for their athletes and help support their Special Needs Team, which practices once a week at their facility and competes at local competitions.
