• Certified Canpower Coach – 2 years experience
• Certified Development 1 – Hockey Canada
• Coached in Prince George Minor Hockey
• Played 3 years with the major junior Prince George Cougars

I was born in Williams Lake and  at the age of two moved to Prince George and have been here ever since and I started skating with my older siblings that same year. I played all my minor hockey in Prince George until moving to Nelson to play Jr B in the KIJHL at the age of 15, from there moved to Duncan for the 93/94 to play for the Capitals in the BCJHL. The next year returned home to play 2 seasons from 94-96 with the PG Cougars in the WHL, then finally wrapping up my hockey career with the Prince George Spruce Kings.

Shortly there after my children started playing hockey and it was my turn to give back, I have been coaching minor hockey in Prince George for the past 10 years and teaching Power Skating for the PGFSC for the last two years.  I have four children of my own and know how important it is to have good instruction to help your child skate to their potential and that is my goal.
