Personal Statement:
My goals are To enable students to learn and understand the importance of all the "connections" in skating -- core strength, artistic effect, softness of knees, precise foot placement and good posture, to achieve better skills over time which result in a pleasant and safe skating experience.

I am a good communicator. I enjoy teaching adults and children equally. I have a positive attitude and am sensitive to each student and his or her goals, fears, and needs. I love skating and teaching and I want to help students technically so they can experience the joy of skating.
