Danielle Hartsell and her brother, Steve, were the first skaters ever to win a U.S. Intermediate Pair Title at the 1991 inaugural Championship, then went on to win the U.S. and World Junior titles in 1995, and the U.S. Senior title in 1999.

Danielle describes the latter as her most meaningful title, because, “It was such an exciting accomplishment for us. So many people said we couldn't do it and we proved them wrong.”

By 2002, however, “My life started to be more important outside of skating. I met my husband and I wanted to finish school. I got married in September of 2003. My husband, Chris Minnis, and I just bought a house. Now, I teach skating full time. I am the skating director in Richmond, Virginia and I go to school part time, studying marketing. I also just got elected to the Athlete's Advisory Committee Chair for US Figure Skating. I would love to thank all the skating fans who supported Steve and I throughout our skating career. I would like everyone to know how happy I am in my new life.”

Coming Up Tuesday, October 19: Canadian Pair Champion Doug Ladret
