My Life Now

My Life Now

Before I would even say that I’m an Olympic medalist, or a high level coach, I must say that I am beyond measure, happy to be a mom, first and foremost. It is hard to be a Mom. It is a very hard work. Dealing with my kids is a lot more difficult compared to dealing with my students. Is hard to balance my time between work and home, but I accomplish it.

People think that if you win an Olympic medal, you can do just about anything. But it really is the other way around…. If you can be a good mom/parent, you’ve done more than win an Olympic medal. My kids are my everything.

They make me happy and smile when I think about them. Alex loves hockey. He did not like figure skating at all. It did upset me for a second maybe but I am very glad that he enjoys hockey. I do not see my boy wearing skating outfits and jumping around with a funny look on his face. Sophia loves skating.

I am working with many great skaters. I coach in North Carolina. All my students are working hard to become the best they want to be. I have a few young kids that I believe will be able to go pretty far in the sport.
