Coaching Philosophy:

To create an environment that allows each skater the opportunity to nurture their dreams as an athlete. As coach, motivator and role model, I encourage skaters to develop a love for skating. It is this love for the sport that will ultimately guide the skater through the successes and challenges of their career. I believe it is important to acknowledge each skater's effort and to celebrate every achievement as it is both of these elements that act as stepping stones toward accomplishing a higher goal.
