  • Experience: I started skating at the age of eight after watching the movie Ice Princess. I had the benefit of having instruction from numerous professionals at some of the top training centers. Ice Castle International Training Center, and the National Training Center in Barrie Ontario, Canada being two of them. I was a regional competitor and later started volunteering at the age of twelve with Learn to Skate in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I received my gold medal in Moves in the Field from the USFSA at age fifteen and became a private coach at age sixteen.
    I love my chosen sport and I have a desire to encourage those who have an interest in learning how to ice skate, whether it be to compete at qualifying competitions, or just to have fun.
    I am a member of the United States Figure Skating Association, and the Professional Skaters Association. I am currently a student at Yavapai College in Prescott Arizona, and a volunteer at the Veterans Hospital in Prescott Arizona.
