——————–

“Our skating career is just beginning. We have accomplished so much the past two years and we both believe it is because of our combined determination and passion we have for the sport. In just two years we were able to accomplish so much! From our first year 8th place finish at the 2012 US Nationals, all the way to our 3rd place finish just a year later at the 2013 US Nationals, and being chosen to represent the US at the 2013 Four Continents Championships. We are looking forward to a great skating career together, and we are working harder to accomplish so much more.”
