I have dedicated most of my life to my sport. My passion is to work with motivated skaters who strive to learn to be the best they can to set and accomplish goals they would not think are possible. I encourage and support the opportunities to reach out to set higher standards for themselves, to reach beyond their natural potential. It is my experience that being involved with sport develops these children to become strong and confident individuals.
