The two-time World team member turned talk show host recently sat down with Figure Skaters Online to discuss how her life has changed since she hung up her skates almost two years ago.
Now, how did the idea for the show come about?
I was watching different shows on YouTube one day when the idea came to me. David is an actor and I thought it would be great practice for the both of us to put ourselves out there in front of a camera on a weekly basis.Are you still involved with skating?
I'm not involved in the sport anymore. I did coach a little bit after I quit skating, but I think it was really important for me to just take a total break from the sport. Skating was my whole life—really my identity for so long that in order to find out who I truly was as a person, and not just an athlete. I had to distance myself for a while to find new passions outside of the sport.
