One of my earliest memories is of my father taking me to ice skate on outdoor rinks in upstate New York. I’d beg him to drive me and then he’d wait with the car running so that I could hop in to warm up now and then. Gliding smoothly across the ice with the crisp winter air on my face, I felt like a bird. And so this is how my fascination with skating began.
Over the years, I have been able to participate in several facets of skating: skater’s mom, adult skater, Club Officer, competition organizer, US Figure Skating judge and Adult Skating Committee member. The sport has a lot to offer; I hope you give it a try!
My first pair of ice skates were black double-runners with light blue laces! While they were fine for skating on the Benson Park lagoon in 1972, by the time I was 9 I really wanted pretty white skates. I have been taking lessons off and on for the last 35 years.
Today I am involved in many aspects of skating, from trial judge to skater to volunteer. I am a US Figure Skating member and a PSA member. But above all, I still love to skate, and especially to spin. There’s just nothing else like it!
