Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
I am presently a ski and snowboard instructor who was in the cast of Disney On Ice for seven seasons. I’m looking for a girl five feet or under who weighs 100 lbs or less who would like to temporarily skate with me for the gold pair test. All is required is the gold skating skills. No previous pair experience is necessary but could not hurt. I want to pass the Senior Pair test to add to the five gold medals I have already earned. It also may be fun to do some adagio pair skating too. This would be a terrific opportunity for a girl who would like to explore doing pair skating!
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I work extremely hard. After seven years skating with Disney and after earning five US Figure gold medals, I’ve learned a lot about teamwork and perseverance.
Extra comments:
My main pair skating coach was Olympic pair skating coach Dalilah Sappenfield. She is extremely dedicated to our sport and is dedicated to all of her students. Due to the great training she gave me, I learned about dedication and hard work and that has helped me as a Disney On Ice cast member. I also train under Natalia Zaitseva in Sun Valley, Idaho.
