Describe a teaching or learning experience that sticks out in your mind.
The technical side of skiing and understanding the details of the sport can be daunting at times. This is cool on one end as it always proves there is more to learn about our sport for all of us. However, doing my best to simplify these concepts to help everyday skiers improve brings great joy to me.

Describe a teaching or learning experience that sticks out in your mind.
After my injury, I had to learn to ski again, only this time sitting down. I thought I would be able to pick up and ski right where I left off. Needless to say, my first lesson in my mind was an epic failure. From that moment on, I realized the importance of instruction and learning the basics from the ground up. I take those lessons and frustrations that I experienced into every lesson that I teach and it grounds me.
