Trajectory, photos and stories about achieving my dream of skating and touring North America with a “cast of thousands” ice skating show, which all “in the know” said couldn't be done, and how support, perseverance, and caring proved them wrong!

Retired Associate Director of Clarkson's Career Center, and North Country native, Barbara Brown began university at Queen's in Kingston, Ontario, and finished the first of 3 degrees with her BS degree at SUNY Cortland. There she helped build both the Skating and Hockey programs. Following graduation, moves to Lake Placid and New York City offered the opening opportunities to achieve her dream. Later, she learned her background proved perfect for working with students who faced obstacles and self-doubt.
