|My student & daughter at practice :)|
When I'm not at home with my family, I'm on the ice. It is my passion. Gliding across the frozen water, I feel a freedom of spirit that I can't fully explain. Even the smell of the ice excites my senses. When I think about it, it seems silly. Why would I spend so much time in a giant indoor refrigerator teaching people how to move across the artificial surface. Why? Because it is fantastically fun. I honestly can't imagine my life without skating. It is part of who I am.
I love the skating itself but I also love the coaching. I am thrilled to spend all day teaching what I love to people of all ages. Each one of my students are such wonderfully different people. I strive to not only improve their athletic ability but to be a positive influence in their life. To be one more person who cares about them and to show them that although perfection is not attainable, it is worthy to strive for in all areas.
