Figure Skating Director
Gretchen Brooks joined Chelsea Piers in August of 2012. She is also our Director of Member Relations and Accounts and has continued in that role and provides senior management oversight to our Rinks operations. A competitive skater in her youth, Gretchen won the Bronze medal at the 1984 and 1985 U.S. National Precision Figure Skating Championships as a member of the Haydenettes. She always remained a figure skating enthusiast and decided to go back to the sport and teach once her daughter started skating at age 5. As a skater, teacher and parent, Gretchen brings a unique, multi-faceted perspective to our ice skating program. In her spare time, she also serves on the board of Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team, one of the largest and most successful synchronized skating organizations in the country. Gretchen received her B.A. in Economics and International Relations from Cornell University.
