The Professional Coaches listed are not hired by the Thoroughbred Figure Skating Club. Coaches are hired by the Lexington Ice Center.
My Goal is to create a strong foundation for my skaters to build on while having fun and learning positive values and good sportsmanship which will serve them well both on and off the ice. I am a member of the Professional Skaters Association, United States Figure Skating, and Thoroughbred Figure Skating Club. I began skating at 4 years old and grew up competing and testing. I’ve tested in freestyle, figures, moves in the field, and ice dancing. I’ve tested my Preliminary figures, Preliminary dances, Pre-Juvenile freestyle, and Novice moves in the field. I also competed in syncro and skated some pairs. I began coaching in high school and have coached for more than 17 years now. My skaters range from skaters testing and competing to skaters who skate just for the fun of it. I coach basic skills, freestyle, moves in the field, and off ice. My Rates are: 30min.-$26, 20min.-$18, and 15min.-$13. For a semi-private lesson add ½ the rate for each additional skater.
