Number of Years Coaching Experience:

11 years

 

Philosophy:

I believe that in order for an athlete to be successful there must be a joint effort and a solid relationship built between the coach, the skater and the parents. I enjoy helping skaters reach their full potential in a fun and challenging way. Through skating, children learn about hard work, goal setting, passion and a sense of accomplishment that will carry them through into all other aspects of their lives. I strive to be a role model for my skaters and always value the relationships I am able to build, not only with my skaters but with parents and other coaches as well.
