At three years old, I fell in love with the ice in a farm town in Illinois, USA. Since then, I have taken gold at countless solo skating competitions, dabbled in pairs skating with my brother, and was the recipient of the Herbert L. Hollowell Standard of Excellence Award in 2020. I am a current junior at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and am coaching as a way to get through school. Since beginning private coaching in the spring of 2021, I have trained as both a skater and a coach under coaches from all across the USA, Ukraine, and Mexico. As a coach, I believe that skaters deserve respect, dedication, and acceptance.
