Lindsey Lord

Co-Head Coach & Choreographer

I started skating at 3 years old and instantly fell in love with the sport. At this early age and through my competitive years I dedicated every minute I had to my toe picks and the rink. With the dedication to the sport comes traveling; and I have been fortunate enough to train in such places as: Nova Scotia, Barrie ON, Philadelphia, California and Whitehorse. 

As an accomplished Senior Lady holding quad gold status, I have been privileged to compete against some of the best in the world including: Kaitlin Osmond, Jessica Dube and Joannie Rochette; as well as having some amazing coaches and mentors in my life: Doug Lee, Robert Tebby, Jeff Langdon, Lori Finney, Greg Folk, Berny Ford, Mark Pillay and Theo Fleury. They have all given wisdom and encouragement to me regarding sport and life; I am grateful to them all.
