Philosophy:

I consider it my responsibility as a coach to provide my athletes with the most up to date technical knowledge and a positive training environment in order to maximize their progress in, and enjoyment of, the sport of Figure Skating.  Since our sport has creative, artistic and mental training aspects, I also strive to foster musicality, creative movement and mental preparation skills in my athletes. Applied consistently, this coaching philosophy enables my athletes to acquire valuable life skills in conjunction with the more specific sport skills.
