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 Rates are: 60 min.-$56-30min.-$28, 20min.-$18, and 15min.-$13. For a semi-private lesson add ½ the rate for each additional skater.
