Years with Recreation Unlimited: 25+

Certification: Level II Instructor

I am an avid sports enthusiast that has been involved in skiing since I was in grade school.  The only way to really appreciate something is to step away from the sport completely only to reconnect with a whole new level of enthusiasm.  I am dedicated to the program and look forward to the returning and new students every year.  This is my way to give back and I absolutely love it!

I have been involved with Recreation Unlimited for over 25 years.  I have taught in the sit down program and the stand up programs at RU.  My current certification levels are: Level II Adaptive, Children’s Specialist I, Alpine Level I.  I serve on the Recreation Unlimited board in a Director capacity and I also serve as Treasurer.  I also serve as the Northern Intermountain Chapter President for the division of the Professional Ski Instructors of America.

The fact that I can take a student that has never been on skiis and have them turning on the snow and gliding down the mountain.  Not to mention the fact that the parents are always in tears because of the accomplishments.  The motto for RU is “IF I CAN DO THIS, I CAN DO ANYTHING!”
