Coaching Philosophy:

My coaching philosophy is to share my knowledge, passion, and love for the sport of figure skating with all levels and abilities. My career was inspired and guided by amazing coaches and peers, and I strive to pass that along to the next generation of athletes as they begin their careers.

I make every effort to guide athletes to achieve their goals within the sport and to empower them to be confident and caring individuals on and off the ice. I always give my best and encourage athletes to do the same while challenging them to be the best they can be in a positive learning environment. It is extremely rewarding to share my passion for the sport of figure skating, a sport I have loved since I was young, and see my athletes love every minute on the ice as much as I continue to.
