Lisa Kuehl

Figure skating was always on Coach Lisa Kuehl's wish list of things to learn as an adult...so she did, and went on the fast track to gaining competitive and educational experience.  Lisa passed her USFS PrePreliminary and Preliminary Moves in the Field, and her Adult Bronze and Adult Silver Freestyle tests within 4 years of beginning lessons. She took a respite in 1999 to design and build her own home with her husband Connie, but came back to figure skating, this time as a club coach.  Coach Lisa still competes on occasion and is also a regular performer in the AFSC Spring Ice Shows and Holiday Gala exhibitions.  When not on the ice, Lisa enjoys life in rural Boone County with Connie and their many pets.  An avid scrapbooker, Lisa recently started a small home scrapbooking service, Heartland Scrapbooks.  Lisa is also a retired airline pilot and helps Connie manage the Boone Municipal Airport where they are both certified flight instructors.
