Lee has been coaching since 1997 with several clubs in the lower mainland and on the sunshine coast. She came to coaching after graduating from UBC with a BSc in Microbiology. Finding that was microbiology was not going be a career, she went back to her first love, skating.
Lee started coaching on the Sunshine Coast and then moved back to the lower mainland, where she has coached beginners to provincial competitors. With the toddler years behind her, she has been able to dedicate more time to Vancouver Skating Club, coaching CanSkate, CanPower, off ice classes and on ice, both with her own students and assisting other coaches. She is working towards completing her National Coach certification and has attend the StarSkate University course with Skate Canada. She has recently become the club’s Director of Programs.
For Lee, great satisfaction comes from a young skater taking their first steps, to a young skater choosing to pursue figure skating, to a hockey player making a rep team for the first time. All because of the hours she has put in helping them chase their dreams.
Great basic skating can take you many places and Lee revels in the change to help each young skater find out where that will be.
