"I wanted to learn [to skate] as soon as I saw Kristi Yamaguchi skate during the 1992 Olympics. Unfortunately, I was only two years old, and the Quad Cities didn’t have an ice rink yet. Once we did, I was signed up for lessons. About a year later, I received my first pair of white skates for Christmas.
I strive to build strong skaters at the grassroots level so that they may continue on to be regional and maybe even national level competitors.
I am excited and feel a sense of responsibility to pass down the techniques and mantras I have been taught."
