WHY DO YOU COACH:
I coach to give something back to a sport I love. I coach because of all the volunteer coaches who encouraged me in cross country skiing.
I believe sport should be fun, it should be for life, and it is for everyone. My goal is for athletes to be safe physically, mentally, and emotionally, and for them to be supported to the best possible degree to achieve their potential.
WHO INSPIRES YOU:
I am inspired by Shirley and Sharon Firth who continue to inspire skiers across the country! I'm also inspired by former coaches of mine and by the athletes--including
my own kids--when I see them flying through the trails, going for it.
HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED ANY COACHING BARRIERS:
My biggest barrier is worrying too much about small things.
