Keynote Speaker: JoJo Starbuck
She made ice skating history in 1968 when she and Ken Sehlley became the youngest pairs team America ever sent to the Olympic Games. This was followed by victories in the United States Pairs Championships in 1970, 1971 and 1972. They were the first Americans to break the Soviet domination in the Pairs Skating events by winning the bronze medal at the World Championships. JoJo and Ken were inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
JoJo now directs Starbuck & Company; a special events production group.
From skating and directing shows for network television to producing private party entertainment and corporate affairs, Starbuck & Company custom tailors ice skating entertainment and fund raising events.
JoJo is a sought after motivational speaker and corporate spokesperson where her extensive experience as an Olympic athlete, coach, entrepreneur and parent gives her a passionate, 360-degree perspective on skating, fitness and life.
