My personal role model
My personal role model is my coach, Jeremy Shield. His ability to spend his life coaching snowboarding for a career at his age inspires me. I hope that I too can continue snowboarding and teaching newer riders to progress just as he has done with me over the many years he has coached me. He is a solid rider with an awesome personallity and a bid inspiration on my future.
