I am 16 years old, and a Junior in high school. I have had the privilege to become one of the first few Junior coaches at Brady's Run. I started skating at around the age of 8. Just like many others, I started in the Learn to Skate program. I soon discovered a passion for figure skating and continued on into private lessons and I have been skating ever since. It is a sport that brings me so much joy, and I want to be able to share that joy with the next generation!
