Coaching Philosophy:
My first priority as a coach is to share my passion for figure skating with my students. I work hard at building a positive self esteem within my students through constructive criticism and positive reinforcement. I am mindful of helping each skater become the best they can be in any discipline of figure skating and at the same time building the strong life lesson skills one can learn through the sport of figure skating.

Competitive Background:
New England Competitor in Singles
