I didn't even really try switch until I was pretty good, which has made learning it a fairly slow process. Even though I want to master switch, I find myself hesitant to actually do it since riding in my normal direction is so easy and fluid compared with the other. I can maneuver in and out of switch and link turns on blues, but doing any serious riding pretty much results in eating shit at this point for me. Just one of those things you have to force yourself to do.

That describes my daughter. She couldn't decide which way was more comfortable so she just kept doing both.

She'll probably end up being really good at riding then. It just allows you to have so much control and perspective. It may take a little longer to learn cause you're learning double the amount of stuff, but it will definitely pay of when you start to ride park.
