right by making academics enjoyable.

There are many coaches that have touched my life in one way or another. I will never
forget my time with Ted Johnson as our team trainer in HS. He taught me the power of
setting high expectations and focusing on a disciplined process to achieve our goal.

What is your favorite hockey memory?
My favorite hockey memory is our first state championship win in 2011. We came from behind for a
thrilling overtime win.

What are your credentials and hockey experience?
I have been coaching youth hockey for 7 years at the Peewee, Bantam, and HS Varsity levels. I
also coach in the MN High Performance Spring evaluations and Fall Tier 1 league.
In addition to hockey coach experience, I have also obtained my Masters in Sports & Exercise
Psychology and am a Mental Conditioning Coach. I help athletes with breathing and
visualization strategies to enhance their focus and recovery.
