I’m kind of a homebody. My husband says I like to just stay home and do nothing but that’s just how I am.
I’d try to channel my nervous energy in a positive way into strength and endurance. It didn’t always work.
Having achieved my own dreams I want to give to kids who are less fortunate who struggle with everyday obstacles. I want to give them something positive in their lives: support.
At 6 years old the ice became a place for me to express myself. Because I was so shy off the ice it became my safe haven with music and freedom and self-expression. That was my emotional outlet.
I burnt myself out of skating. I was ready to focus on being a mom.
I’ve realized how precious life is. When I was younger I was more adventurous. I felt invincible. I was game for everything. As a mom I don’t want to get injured because then I can’t take care of my kids.
