Director and Coach
I graduated from Marquette University, in Milwaukee, WI, in May 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education and Sociology and a minor in family studies. I’m currently employed through the Kenosha Unified School District. I have been coaching individual skaters since 2004, some as early as basic skill level and have also been fortunate to take skaters to the regional level. In 2006-2008 I began coaching synchro with the Cutting Edge Ice Stars, and in 2009 is when I began coaching for the ISI team, Kenosha Ice Prisms. In the Winter of 2011 through Spring of 2013 I coached the Pleasant Prairie Patriettes. I enjoy working with children and watching their faces light up once they have achieved something they worked so hard for. The skaters are the reason why I love my job and have fun doing what I do.
