I have been coaching for over 35 years.I have coached skaters of all levels and abilities, right from the first step onto the ice up to competitive athletes. Currently I coach Preschool Canskate group programs and as well I am a private lessons coach. I teach all disciplines of skating: Freeskate, Dance, Artistic and Skating Skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed the thrill and challenge of coaching many bright, talented, aspiring competitive skaters from the Central Alberta area who have realized National success. I have been involved in skating since I was 4 years old. There is something special about being on the ice skating – it makes me smile and I enjoy sharing my passion for skating. I simply love this wonderful sport and enjoy children of all ages. It would be my great pleasure to work with your daughter or son, please feel free to contact me to book lesson time, I will do the best I can to accommodate all requests.

I started out my skating skating career with the red deer skating club at the age of four for fifteen years. During this time I have won five provincial titles, a national bronze medal, competed at a national and international level for several years and have also achieved quad gold. As my competitive career ended, a new one started. For the past two years I have been working for Willy Bietek Productions as a performance skater on Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships. Prior to these adventures and in between, I have been teaching PreSchool/CanSkate as well as working on my Level 1 coaching. Skating will always be a strong passion of mine but it has been these past few adventures that has sparked a new passion for coaching. I want to help guide and give the students I teach the right tools to help achieve success within their skill level.

I started out skating at the age of 3 and throughout the years I have been a skater, coach, skating mom and most recently a judge. Coaching skaters aged 2 to adult and from beginner to gold levels in all disciplines is very rewarding. I love sharing my passion and knowledge of skating and continue to have fun on the ice. Currently, I have the opportunity to coach Canskate, Prestarskate and Starskate programs in Red Deer.
