As an introvert, I have a tendency to bottle up my feelings. When you’re one half of a team, that’s not a very successful business model. Skating with a partner taught me patience. It’s also made me realize the importance of unconditional support and understanding. The partnership Scott and I share is based entirely on trust, communication, and common goals; things we constantly work on building and maintaining.
