Emma Jobson has been skating for the last twenty years and coaching for the past nine. Throughout my skating career I was fortunate to pass two senior level USFSA tests (moves and freestyle) and compete nationally as a senior level skater;  synchronized skating and theater on ice. One of my favorite aspects of skating has been performing in shows. During college I skated professionally as a cheerleader for a professional hockey team. My coaching philosophy is that you make the most progress when you are passionate about what you’re doing, I believe that the most important aspect of any sport is having fun, and I believe in the importance of taking the time to develop a solid technical foundation.  Coaching Focus: freestyle, moves, power, choreography -

Figure skating is a multifaceted sport. A coach plays a seminole role in the development of a figure skaters performance - whether they want to just skate recreational or competitively.  It takes an individualized plan and personal relationship to teach all the elements involved in becoming a complete figure skater.  Coaches help skaters develop emotionally, physically, psychologically to have a successful skating future.
