Josee Chouinard

"If you are ever blessed enough to spend time around Josee Chouinard, she's one of the kindest, sweetest, most honest people you'll ever meet. To spend thirty seconds with Josee is to fall in love with her. She is an absolutely wonderful person."-Scott Hamilton

Josée Chouinard is one of Canada's most honored skaters with three national championships to her credit. She captured her first title in 1991, then won back-to-back crowns in 1993 and 1994. Chouinard represented Canada at two World Championships and two Olympic Games.

Chouinard qualified for the Canadian Olympic Team in 1992 and 1994 taking ninth place in both Albertville and Lillehammer. She turned professional following the Lillehammer Games and earned first place at the Canadian Professional Championships, just her second pro event.

Josée reinstated as an amateur in April 1995. In the inaugural year of the international Grand Prix of Figure Skating, she earned three podium finishes, two bronze and a gold.
