Skating Career

Since I began skating at 3, I cannot imagine life without being on the ice, and I hope to instill in others the simple joy of gliding, spinning, jumping and expressing emotion to music.

I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to represent the USA in two Winter Olympics, and to reach my lifelong goal of standing on the Podium in 1992.  Everything came together for the final competition of my amateur career, and that performance provided a springboard to six years of pro skating all over the world.
