Lisa Rheam, Program Director
Lisa is a wife, mother of 3 grown daughters and a grandmother. She has been involved in cheerleading since her high school years, but took on an active head coaching role in 2005 when her own daughter’s high school team needed a coach. She helped build strong cheerleading programs at Oceanview (formerly Midway) and Calvary Christian Academy. In 2013, she felt called to begin an FCC impact team through her local church. Lisa directs this program with the desire to help girls and young women discover the truth about their own value and to help them view challenges in their lives as an opportunity for growth. She prays for each cheerleader to find the hope, love & joy of a Christ-centered life.
Liandra Rheam, Coach
Liandra coached our very first Tiny team (ages 2-4) in season one. She has jumped in wherever needed to make Panthers Cheer successful over the years. A 12+ year brain tumor survivor, Liandra sets an example of hope and perseverance. She encourages ownership and independence while giving God all the glory for every victory! She loves being not only a coach but a mentor to our girls.
Lynsie Pecina, Coach
Lynsie has 9 years of cheerleading experience. After 4 years of high school cheering / running elementary age cheer clinics, she began coaching in 2011. She quickly began to form a strong bond and have a positive influence with the girls on her teams. She received the 2019 FCC Legacy award for investing her time and talents to raise up the next generation of cheerleaders. Lynsie has coached both level 1 & 2 and will be one of our choreographers this season. She has been instrumental in the growth of the program.

Rosella comes to us with a background in cheerleading of 15 years. Her coaching experience ranges from elementary age all the way through high school. She first fell in love with FCC when she attended cheer camp as a coach in 2009. Rosella was part of the planning and launch of Panthers Cheer. She genuinely cares about each individual cheerleader and patiently teaches them to improve their skills and to always give their best.
Judy Rodriguez, Admin Assistant
Judy began her ministry with Panthers Cheer as a support to Lisa in hosting our End of the Season Banquet and Awards Party. Judy has the heart of a servant and over the years has taken on more and more of an active roll in organizing all the little details that make Panthers Cheer special. She looks for ways to use every opportunity to minister to others and to share the good news of God’s love.
Leticia Ventura, Admin Assistant
We are so blessed to have Lety as a part of this ministry. She became involved in 2019 when her daughter Ava joined. She jumped right in to help make our team events special, from team dinners to our end of season banquet, Lety loves to use her gifts to serve others. What started out as something new for her daughter Ava, has turned into a family affair and her whole family is now involved serving Panthers Cheer in any area where we have a need.
