I love to learn! My experiences have taken me around the world living and working in seven different countries including Indonesia, Egypt, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium, and France. I attended Brigham Young University - Idaho and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement certificate in French Education K-12. Figure skating has been a hobby of mine for over 20 years. I am a member of the United States Figure Skating Association and the Ice-skating institute. I have been coaching figure skating for over 10 years and have participated in local shows as well as in-state, and out-of-state competitions.
