Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
My short term goal is to find a partner as soon as possible so that we can get an early start on this season. I want to qualify for and do well at next year’s U.S. Championships, whether it be at Novice or Junior.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
I am new to pairs and currently training all my pair elements. I love throws! I have tested thru Juvenile, and am planning on testing Intermediate and Novice soon. I am very dedicated and a hard worker, but I like to have fun!
I am very slight in build and am very expressive on the ice. I have always been interested in pairs. I now have the time to devote to this discipline as I am finishing up my freshman year at Pepperdine University and plan on taking whatever time I need to reach my goals.
Although I am a "lefty", I have been training my pair elements with CCW partners. I am able to do all elements "righty" except for throws - naturally. I am extremely flexible and not afraid of any challenges!
Also, while I have never skated dance before, I am always open to this option, too.
