    Broken Open #17: Karine Dazé

    Karine has been a snow and skateboard coach for 18 years.  A graduate of the National Coaching Institute Program at the University of Calgary, she blends her formal education with her 26 years as a snowboarder - specializing in the half pipe -  and is passing on her passion for sport to the next generation.  Not growing up in sport, I've been fascinated to hear her credit the lessons learned through sport for her own tenacity and resilience.   This podcast is being released on her birthday!   Follow Karine's personal Insta @kadaisies
