“I have been skating my whole life! …and to be able to pass on my passion to so many young skaters is a wonderful experience for me. I really connect with the skaters as they progress and grow up each year. I will push and I will encourage and together we will enjoy and improve! “

“I first stepped on the ice at 3 years of age, and figure skating quickly became my passion and life. I competed for seven years and later during college I joined Canada Ice Dance Theatre, where I got to skate with friends I made during my time competing. I have been offered to a few gigs with Disney on Ice, which I turned down to pursue other interests. Today I enjoy sharing my love of skating and am over moon when I get to celebrate the big and small accomplishments while coaching.“
