More About Lauren

I feel coaching is a great way to give back to the sport that has touched my life for over 20 years. I have experience as a competitive singles skater and a principle performer for a traveling theater on ice team. I now enjoy teaching private and group lessons, specialty classes, off-ice training, and assisting with ice show production.

The cornerstone of my coaching philosophy is to teach sound fundamentals while developing physically strong skaters. I encourage showmanship and teach principles like musicality and expression. I strive to build poise and determination in my students, regardless of age or skill level, as this is necessary for continued progress in the sport and in life.

I earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Pacific University and Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Wellness from Arizona State University. I truly understand the demands of this sport on the body and look forwarding to developing figure skating athletes. Thank you!
