Years of coaching experience?
Currently in my 8th year.
Favourite run at Grouse Mountain?
Green and pink.
Coffee and carbs.
Best mountain/place you've gone skiing?
Whistler, Sun Peaks, and Apex.
What does an ideal ski day look like for you?
My day starts with great visibility, perfectly tuned skis and the right ones for the hero snow, a snack and some tea in my pack, laps all day and apres. Sleep and repeat. I would also be skiing with my ski buddies and husband. We all like the same kind of ski day.
If you could switch coaching roles for one day with any other Tyee coach, who would you switch with? why?
I'm struggling with this question. I really like what I do.
What’s your session goal for athletes when dealing with a heavy weather and dense training day?
There would be a few on my list: safety, awareness, athletic ready position, creative use of terrain, breaking when needed.
If you could give only one piece of advice to your athletes for the rest of your coaching career, what would tell them?
Always give it your best and show up. You'll see results. It's hard for young athletes to understand that but you see it so clearly when you're older.
Highlight of your coaching career?
I feel like I'm working towards that. Every mentor that I have had, everything I have done to learn and get better is getting me set up for my highlight reel.
Describe Grouse Tyee in one word.
What do you look forward to most this season?
Being able to work with the new kids and families in U8 and training with the big kids to get even better at skiing.
