I love to skate and be on the ice. I have passed my pre-preliminary moves in the field and have participated in qualifying and non-qualifying competitions. I have been coaching and volunteering for four years. I am USFSA certified and can coach for competitions and testing, for learning to skate, brushing up on old skills, as well as any possible ice shows here at the rink. I also help with the science on ice program here at PIR.
I am currently a student at the University of Idaho and am eager to share my love of the ice with anyone who is willing to learn. Feel free to contact me by phone (253) 508-2784 or by email at
