Number of Years Coaching Experience:

Canskate coaching for 2 years and first year Starskate.

 

Coaching Philosophy:

If I could only teach skaters one thing, my priority would be to teach skaters self-confidence. My goal as a coach would be to instill confidence in skaters so that they can feel as comfortable as possible on the ice and in their actions whether that be competing, performing, testing, or even just skating for fun. For me, when I was competing and I felt confident, that’s when I had the most fun and I hope to share that joy with skaters. Everyone is different and everyone learns at their own speed, but even the littlest bit of faith in yourself is powerful and skaters will be able to accomplish much more than they initially thought. I can’t wait to see the journey skaters will take as they grow and learn valuable life lessons.
