Head Coach – Snowboarding
A competitive athlete during my college years, the love for snowboarding has remained a constant. Moved to Colorado from NY out of high school, and made a home and started a family. Vail Colorado is where I became an instructor and coach and earned my certifications. Coaching on the ANC, NorAm, Europa circuits has been rewarding and built a spectrum of experience that can be drawn from to achieve goals with athletes I work with.
