PA of the Month - Roxana Strasun

Roxana began skating at the age of 35 and chose to PA because she wanted to be able to share her passion and help new skaters on their path of learning how to skate. “Working alongside a team of great coaches and seeing skaters progress is the greatest reward and it brings me a lot of joy.”

Outside of skating Roxana enjoys swimming, tennis and reading.

Monique began skating when she was 7 years old and is coached by Melinda and Michael. She likes to skate because it makes her feel joyful and happy! “When music goes on my brain can’t stop thinking of dances.” She would like to do singles and pairs skating.

At home Monique has 2 dogs. She likes to do crafts and write stories. “One thing I like best about myself is that I’m passionate about who I am and I always believe in myself.” Monique has an old brother, Julian, who also skates.
