It’s no coincidence that most of Katie’s favorite skaters are ice dancers. She admires the
expressiveness and work ethic of former champions Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto, as well as
Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre. Her favorite single skater is U.S. Ladies Champion “Alissa
Czisny because she has great musicality on the ice, is very graceful and flexible.”
Katie’s short-term goals are to land all her double jumps and to improve how she relates to music.
She also wants to place in Regional and National competitions. In the long run, she aspires to
to progress in all aspects of skating and is considering searching for a dance partner too.
I coach Katie along with Vincent Restencourt and Stuart Bradley. I have choreographed many
programs for her including music from the musical Hairspray, Cirque Du Soleil, Shakespeare
Love Soundtrack, Loreena McKennitt and many more.

A Parents Perspective
“Elizabeth is a perfect fit for our daughter, Katie. Katie always looks forward to her lessons with
with excitement. Elizabeth brings out the best in each of her skaters by accentuating the positive.
She is always "thinking outside the box" and using her skater's abilities to the greatest extent.
Her choreography is beautiful and matches her skater's personality. Elizabeth is open to
suggestions from her skaters and works with them to incorporate their ideas into a program
especially tailored to the skater. She is very supportive of her skaters and always encourages
them to do their best but to also have fun at the same time!”. Patty and Terry Pavlick
