Central Board Director
What inspired you to become an instructor?
A friend told me that Sunburst, a local Milwaukee hill, was looking for instructors and since I loved skiing so much, I should consider teaching. What a great idea. Until then, I had never realized how rewarding it would be to meet new people and share the joy of skiing with them.
What’s the best piece of advice you could offer a new instructor?
Be bold and ask for guidance. There are so many unbelievable trainers, team members, examiners, and leaders that sometimes it can be intimidating to ask them questions or for help. Be reassured they want to help you as much as you want to learn.
What’s your favorite member benefit?
When I became an instructor, I hoped to meet people to ski and ride with. Having met so many new friends through PSIA to slide with has been the most amazing benefit of all. The Pro discounts aren’t too shabby either.
Areas you have taught at:
I’ve taught at Sunburst and currently teach at Little Switzerland, both near Milwaukee.
