Coaching Philosophy: My goal as a coach is to spread my love and
enthusiasm for the sport and art of figure skating. I believe in teaching very strong
basics while developing well-rounded athletes who understand the importance of
sportsmanship. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion for the sport by guiding
athletes through their journeys and watching them grow.
