Personal Profile:
I am a developmental level coach with a BA Professional Skater’s Association Rating. I began coaching in 2017.

I am a former international Competitor, Intercollegiate National Medalist, Regional Finalist, and Double Gold Medalist in Moves In The Field and Freestyle during the 15 years that I skated competitively.

Outside of the rink I am a physical therapist, treating orthopedic injury and vestibular dysfunction. I enjoy being active through running and yoga and enjoy spending time with my rescue dog, Whisky!
