The bigger you smile, the bigger I smile; I’m all about having fun up there on the runs! I’ll always be ready with a lesson, or a quick-tip, to make sure we’re getting the most out of our time together. Through positive reinforcement, patience, and injecting fun into the teachable moments, I’ve carved a groove with my teaching style that really connects with skiers of all ages and abilities. I will do my best to achieve three things: we will have a blast, we’re going to laugh, and you’ll enjoy skiing more when we’re done.
I was an Optimist Youth Football coach for 20 years. The experience of working in a group sport has helped shape my instruction style tremendously. I also come from a large family… I have 10 brothers and sisters (I mentioned I’m very patient, right?!) I also have four boys, two of whom have become instructors themselves, so you could say ski instruction is in my blood. Family is everything to me, and seeing your family learn and grow together is why I do what I do.
