I have been coaching for over 20 years and the past 16 have been as Director of the Capital Ice Synchro program.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 daughters who skate on our synchro teams. I love working with skaters and watching them succeed and achieve things they didn't think were possible working together as a team.

Coaching: Connection, Crystals, Cadence and Cubes Black
I have been lucky enough to be in the Capital Ice family for 14 years now. I am a four time national level coach, and I have been lucky enough to travel with the Chips to every nationals we have gone to in the last 10 years. I love seeing the teams work so hard towards the same goal and to see the life long friendships that are made in this program.
While I’m not at the rink, I’m usually attending school or doing homework. I am currently just finishing up my first year in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at the University of Mary.
I am so looking forward to the great season with Capital Ice!

I began synchro at the age of 8 when the synchro program started. I was a Chip for 10 years and a member of the first national team. After graduating, I skated 4 years as a member of Team USA.
