Coaching Philosophy:
My coaching philosophy is to share my knowledge, passion and love for the sport of figure skating to all levels and abilities.

Helping guide my athletes to achieve their goals within the sport and empower them to be confident and caring individuals both on and off the ice. I always give my best and encourage my athletes to do the same, to challenge themselves to be the best they can be in a positive learning environment. It is so rewarding to help in this process of developing young athletes through building character and confidence while achieving their goals.

With a passion for the sport of figure skating since I was young, I loved every minute of being on the ice. Amazing coaches, peers and inspirations guided my career and I hope to pass that along to my athletes on the ice and moving into their careers.
