Number of Years Coaching Experience:

4 years

 

Philosophy:

My philosophy is to help skaters grow as people and as athletes, while enjoying what they are doing. I strive to create a positive environment for all levels of skaters, where skaters are not afraid to speak up or make mistakes. I hope to help all skaters reach their goals in skating, whether that is competing, completing tests, or learning a new skill. I believe it is important for coaches to set an example for skaters by being kind, loving what they do, and treating people respectfully.
