I believe in coaching and promoting the all around skater, athlete and person.  I love team coaching and giving the athlete a team experience in this individual sport while helping them reach their highest of goals.  I’m also a promoter of skating for life and fun!

When not on the ice, I love Fernie outdoor life – mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, paddle boarding and tennis are my most favourites.  At home it’s reading, knitting and most recently playing the ukulele.
