Coaching Philosophy:
I coach skaters of various ages. Currently, my youngest student is five and my oldest student is eighty two! I have students who are strong competitors in free skating and ice dance, test skaters who enjoy building their skills, and skaters who skate for healthy exercise of the mind, body, and soul. I love teaching all these different types of skaters how they can be successful in this sport.
