  • In the over 20 years that I have been teaching figure skating at Sno King Renton, my teaching style has always been positive reinforcement and encouragement; I teach my students by reinforcing correct techniques. It is important to instill the belief in my students that hard work and dedication result in positive skating and life skills. My goal is to help skaters find a love for skating like I have, that will last their entire skating journey.

  • Figure skating has been my lifelong passion. With over 14 years of coaching experience, it is my mission to share a love of the sport with students of all ages and abilities. Whether skating to compete, test or get a great workout, the time we spend together instills more than a strong work ethic. It builds a high level of confidence that extends far beyond the ice. As a former competitive figure skater, competing all over the country and abroad for 10 years, I had the pleasure of training under both national and internationally ranked Olympic coaches. Today, I’m proud to have led multiple regional medalists and champions to their titles. In addition to being PSA and U.S. Figure Skating certified, I specialize in freestyle, ice dance, moves in the field, choreography and off-ice fitness — both independently and as part of a coaching team. Figure skating is a wonderful sport and I believe it's never too late, and almost never too early, to lace up a pair of skates and fly!​

  • For over twenty years I have helped skaters develop a lifelong love for figure skating through dedication, strength, and proper technique. As a former national competitor in synchronized skating and Division I college athlete, I understand perseverance and hard work only lead to achievement with encouragement, patience, and support. I hope to provide this foundation for my skaters as they embark on their journey and progress into successful competitors.​

  • My mission is to teach skaters, above all else, to truly be passionate and love the sport. By providing organized guidance for more than 30 years as senior skating staff, I have taught skaters to reach for their dreams and goals — all while embracing the joy of skating. From toddlers, to adults, I have worked with skaters of all ages and disciplines, supporting them to achieve goals such as competing at the Junior National level, and becoming Adult National Champions. As a skater with more than 40 years of experience, I trained under PSA Master Rated international, world and Olympic coach, Kathy Casey, achieving U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medalist status in compulsory figures and free skating and completing the silver-level ice dance series. Through nine years of competing at the regional and sectional levels, as well as touring worldwide as a featured skater with Disney on Ice, I have honed skills that I use to help skaters learn the art of performing while also advancing their technical abilities. I bring these experiences with me to each lesson, with the goal of passing along skating knowledge, instilling valuable life lessons, and sharing the love for the sport with my students.

  • My goal is to pass on my love and passion for the sport of figure skating to each and every one of my skaters. I want each skater to truly enjoy their time on the ice and have fun! I believe parents should be involved in a supportive and positive role. I will always look out for the well-being of the skater. That includes mentally, emotionally as well as physically.
