Coaching Philosophy:
I am passionate about learning and coaching, both for my athletes and myself. My goal is to share my
love and knowledge of the sport and to make learning both fun and rewarding.  I strive to instill
dedication, perseverance and a diligent work ethic in my students — qualities that will serve as a solid
grounding for life outside of skating. Some of my most cherished moments are seeing the broad smile of
accomplishment when a student has that “light bulb” moment after successfully learning a new skill.
