Hello Parry Sound Figure Skating community, although this is not my first year involved with your skating club, this will be my first year in a full time coaching position and I look forward to being a part of your community.

           

I began skating at the age of 9 and have continued loving the sport ever since. As a skater, I have experience in both the Competitive and Star Skate streams. My highest competitive test passed is Novice, but I competed at the Junior level. In addition, I have also achieved quadruple gold, meaning that I earned a gold level in all the four disciplines of skating.

           

As for coaching, I have been a qualified coach since the age of 16 with my Canskate and level 1 certification. My level 2 is on the agenda, but has taken a back seat to gaining more of my teaching qualifications.  I have run Canskate programs, I have been a dance partner, and I have provided private lessons for all levels of skating (ranging from primary to senior competitive).  I have been an individual coach and a part of team coaching. I have met many wonderful people at the many clubs I have coached for, ranging from Blind River through to Parry Sound.  I believe that I bring a well-rounded view of the sport through both experiences as skater and coach.  I believe that the sport of figure skating has more to offer than just what goes on, on the ice. I wish all skaters luck this upcoming season and look forward to the possibility of working with parents, skaters, executive, and fellow coaches.

I am very excited to continue my coaching career at the Parry Sound Skating Club (PSSC) with which my skating and coaching career started. As a skater at PSSC I am a double gold medalist within the Skate Canada's test stream and received my level one coaching certificate. From there I left to pursue my education where I earned a Diploma in Fitness and Health Promotion.

 

I then returned to the Barrie area where I had skated for many summers to coach and pursue further education. During this time I had the pleasure of coaching at a variety of clubs as a club coach and head coach. During this time I also earned a degree in Psychology and Education. I also earned my Power Skating certificate and have had the opportunity of coaching and organizing power skating programs.

I have 16 years coaching experience and have had the opportunity of shadow coaching with many of Skate Canada's best coaches at the Mariposa National Training Center.

 

I believe that my education and experience influences me greatly as a coach and will assist in the understanding of you child's development and my ability to adapt my teaching style to every individual skater. I am always looking for new techniques and skills that will assist the skater(s) in becoming the best skater and confident individual that they can be.
