This season she will also be working with Northeastern's Athletic department for her Sports Nutrition rotation as part of her dietetic internship. 


Julie loves coaching with this team and knows how much hard work it takes to continue your skating career while in college. The team's goal is to qualify for National Intercollegiate Finals.

Elizabeth is in her 3rd season coaching our team! Elizabeth grew up skating in Central Pennsylvania and holds her USFS gold medals in MIF and Ice Dance. Elizabeth has been coaching group and private lessons in the greater Boston area for the last decade, and she advises a high school team for skaters in the Metro North area. Elizabeth specializes in stroking skills, edgework, and compulsory ice dance.


Elizabeth completed both her B.A. in Pure and Applied Mathematics and her M.A.T. in Secondary Math Education from Boston University. At BU, she skated with BU’s intercollegiate figure skating club, and was a member of their 2009 and 2010 National Champion teams.


She loves encouraging her students to fill the rink with their skating. A lifelong mathlete and a fitness junkie, when she’s not on the ice, Elizabeth works full time as a high school math teacher and teaches spin and bootcamp classes for Turnstyle Cycle.
