Jillian Miller

I have been figure skating since October 2012 and volunteering/coaching Learn to Skate lessons since 2017. I have completed my Junior Freeskate and Senior Moves in the Field and am a Gold Medalist. I love working with children and teenagers, but everybody is welcome! My primary goal is to guide the skater to reach their own goals whether that is competing, leveling up, or just having a fun time on the ice.
