Colette Harris

Tutor

Bio:
I have a Master’s of Science Degree in Journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from DePaul University. I am a certified professional coach through iPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching and have a health coaching certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I grew up figure skating in the area and began coaching children of all ages while in college. I taught skating for nearly a decade before embarking on a journalism career and loved the time I spent interacting with my students. My favorite part of teaching was watching the kids grow as people and as athletes every week. I loved watching them master new skills on and off the ice! In addition to teaching technical skating skills, I work as a mental skills coach, helping young athletes manage competition anxiety, set training goals, and gain and build self-esteem. I truly enjoy helping children develop the life skills necessary to build a happy and successful future. I am currently a professional writer and love what I do. I write for a variety of outlets including Outside Magazine (Outside Online), the Daily Herald, ChicagoStyle Weddings Magazine, and SKATING Magazine. I run my own digital publication, GOLD Athlete Mag, for high school and collegiate female athletes that covers nutrition, sports psychology, conditioning, and inspiring stories of female athletes from around the globe. In my free time I enjoy cooking, yoga, reading, and being active.
