Growing up in Canada, with a father who coached Hockey and an older sister who was already an accomplished figure skater, it was a given that the moment I could walk they had me on the ice.
Skating was a way of life for me, and I spent 7 days a week in the ice rink, training both before and after school. Down time was spent mucking around on the frozen lake in front of our house with friends. I trained in Free Skate, Figures and Ice Dance my entire skating life, but it wasn’t until I discovered Synchro (or Precision as it was called back then), that I found my true love for the sport. I loved the teamwork and camaraderie of synchro, but above all, it was so much fun! At the time Edmonton Precision was dominating synch in Canada, and I was fortunate enough to be coached by the legendary Benoit Venne, who later went on to found Les Supreme and coach them to multiple World Championship victories. This sport has evolved immensely since those days, but my love for this sport and what it is evolving into remains unending.
I later went on to skate internationally in ice shows, before eventually returning to College to study Sports Science. I spent my free time in college either in the rink coaching, as a sports trainer for one of our local hockey and rugby teams, or working in our fitness centre. I have spent my life
involved in sports or being surrounded by professional athletes, including a 13 year stint touring
with my husband on the European PGA. I learned so much about the mental side of elite sports
during this time and I endeavour to apply those lessons to my coaching methodology. I’ve also
spent many years dancing Modern Jive (Ceroc) and West Coast Swing; these styles are an
amalgamation of many genre’s of dance and I love the opportunity to incorporate them into
I feel privileged to be able to support athletes on their journey as they strive to achieve their goals
and grow in this sport, and a willingness to share the knowledge and many life lessons this sport
has taught me. I’m passionate about teaching and nurturing talent, and showing our skaters that
they really can move mountains if they put their minds to it!
I’m an APSA level 2 certified coach and an Australian Sports Medicine Level 2 Trainer.
