Have been an Artistic USARS Roller Figure Skating Coach (Quad) since 1954 in the Northwest Region, coaching figures, freestyle, pairs, dance, creative solo and Precision Team events, and was a former competitive skater and national placewinner. Holds a Gold Medal Proficiency Test in Dance Skating.
Has been teaching for 52 years in the Northwest, coaching many National Winners in Freestyle, Dance, Figures, Creative Solo and Precision Team skating. I hold a Gold Medal Proficiency Test in Dance skating and coached a skater who placed 3 times in 4 World competitions and she also was the Pan Am Champion in Ladies Freestyle. I have coached 5 US National Bronze Medal Precision Teams who participated in 3 World Championships.
This sport has been my lifelong hobby. I enjoy working with skaters of all ages and abilities and sharing in their achievements.
I WANT TO PROMOTE THE SPORT OF ROLLER SKATING AND MAKE THE PUBLIC UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES FOR HEALTH AND MENTAL FITNESS.
SOME PEOPLE STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT A ROLLER SKATER CAN ACTUALLY DO JUMPS, SPINS, FIGURES, DANCES AND ARTISTIC SKATING ON ROLLER SKATES LIKE ICE SKATERS DO.
