WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST COACHING POSITION:
My first coaching position was with my hometown club as a CanSkate coach. This was while I was still skating and being that role model for the younger skaters to look up to is empowering.
WHY DO YOU COACH:
I coach because I love skating and I enjoy watching that skater finally figure out their latest skill. I am so proud of them for their persistence and courage to keep trying and keep reaching for their goals.
WHO INSPIRES YOU:
Of course when I was younger it was the athletes on TV and my coaches. Now, its my skaters. Seeing their faces light up when they get that jump, spin or step
sequence that they have been working on. Knowing that we have stayed so positive and worked so hard to accomplish their goals.
I want to encourage all skaters to skate with passion and love of the sport. Help them attain their goals by overcoming obstacles and remind them of why they joined their sport and why they are still pursuing their dreams.
