With over 30 years of figure skating experience - 15 of them synchro - skating is a huge part of Trish's life. Spending time with her family - husband David and daughters Sydney and Vanessa (also skaters) - is very important to Trish. A Senior Project Manager at SaskTel by day, in the evenings (when not at the rink) Trish can typically be found getting her girls to and from their dance studio. Trish loves to travel with her husband - either to explore new places or just to get away and relax. Trish's goal as a coach is to give every one of her skaters the opportunity to continuously improve their skills and develop a passion for the sport of synchronized skating so that they absolutely love to step on the ice each and every time - just like she does.
