I have always been a very proud member of the Grandview Skating club. This club has been my home, and my family, since a very young age and I will always find value in what I have gained here. It has been an incredibly journey watching our club grow from a STARSkate group of 12 struggling to stay afloat, to over 50 members in STAR programming alone! Being a part of this development has been a huge part of my motivation and drive to continue to make changes and continue to keep Grandview a special, and fun, place to learn and grow.
I hope to pass on the experience and memories to our skaters for years to come, while keeping a supportive and inclusive atmosphere for everyone involved. Our skaters inspire me to be a better coach every time I step onto the ice and see their hard work and positive attitudes. Figure Skaters are brave, resilient, and passionate about their progress on and off the ice which creates a wonderful atmosphere for our team of coaches to be a part of. I feel lucky to be able to work with such wonderful skaters here at Grandview!
