CAREER: Product Designer
FAMILY/SIGNIFICANT OTHER: My husband Jim, and children Corinne and Jonas
WHEN/HOW YOU STARTED SKATING: I skated occasionally for fun as a kid and teenager. My younger sister was a competitive figure skater (who also skated “precision”), and my brother and dad skated hockey. I loved watching them, but it all seemed like a lot of work so I stayed away! Fast forward about 30 years to 2008 when I began taking learn to skate classes at Chelsea Piers with my family and became addicted overnight. My sister just laughs and thinks I’m completely insane.
WHEN/HOW YOU STARTED SKATING SYNCHRO:
I met some persuasive ambassadors in 2009 who encouraged me to try. They were right, synchro skating is a fun challenge, and being on this team is a great experience.
FAVORITE SKATER: John Curry, Scott Hamilton, Kurt Browning…it would be a long list.
SKATING GOALS: To improve my control, to test moves, and to try ice dancing.
