I have been coaching for 40 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 love coaching skating! My favourite thing about skating is being able to share my passion for the sport with skaters of all ages and levels. Currently, I coach Canskate, Adultskate, Starskate, and Podium Pathway Athletes. I have been coaching for more than 30 years which has given me the opportunity to work with many amazing athletes some of whom have become Provincial Medalists and Champions and some who have gone on to become Coaches or Judges themselves. I am Provincially trained and am presently working towards attaining my National Certification. I am a mentor in the Skate Canada Diverse Leaders in Skating Mentorship Program for the promotion of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

I started coaching in 2002 after years of being a program assistant for skating programs in Saskatchewan, where I grew up and found my passion for skating. Since starting my coaching journey, I have also completed my bachelor's degree in Education, and I work as a high school biology and science teacher by day.  I joined the coaching team with the Red Deer Skating Club in 2020 and have been doing canskate and teen skate group programs. I am excited to join the group of coaches providing private figure skating lessons and sharing my passion for figure skating with the skaters in Red Deer. I am available to coach all disciplines and levels of skaters and I look forward to hearing from you!
