THE COACH

I began my competitive skating career at the age of 7 in roller speed skating.  As the sport evolved, I switched to inline and ice speed skating and later ice hockey, founding and playing for the University of Denver Women’s Club Hockey team and beginning a 15-year hockey career.

I eventually returned to competitive speed skating landing a professional sponsorship with Tru-Rev and competed throughout North America and in Europe. I successfully competed in all disciplines, including short-track, banked track, road and marathon skating.  In two years I was fortunate to achieve 14 national titles and 2 national records.  .  

Eventually, I turned my attention to coaching, where I am able to bring my knowledge as a speed skater to hockey, coaching for various hockey camps and programs such as the Popovic Hockey Academy and Regis High School. I also run my own skating mini-camps, but my favorite coaching is one-on-one or semi-private lessons, where I truly get to know each skater individually and engage in a long term coaching relationship.
