My husband, Frank, and I got our start right out of college as Ski Patrollers at Hidden Valley. Later we were recruited to work for the Ski School. Seven Springs had a little bigger mountain so we moved on. I became involved with WPRC when Jim Connelly, then head coach, asked me to work with the younger racers. I loved the challenge because I was then, but recently retired, a second grade teacher. I am a certified Level 2 member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America as well as a Level 100 certified USSA Coach.
