Liese Piper lives in Mechanicsburg, Pa. with her four cats, Storm, Nickie, Rocky, and foster cat, Samson. They share their home with an elderly rabbit, Daisy (age 11). Liese is an inventory management specialist for the U.S. Department of Defense.
When she was little, Liese’s aunt would take her and her siblings to Hershey Bears games. Her aunt would skate with them after the game, and Liese loved it—so she signed up for learn to skate. She also took ballet, tap, jazz, and baton classes starting at age 2 and has an overall love of performing. Additionally, she played house hockey, some travel hockey, and junior high hockey before taking a 12-year hockey break.
Liese moved to Florida after college to work for a mouse (in Disney’s operations, not performing!). When she moved back up north to be closer to family, she joined her dad and brother’s recreational hockey team, but found she missed dancing. The husband of fellow RIU teammate, Chelsea, is on Liese’s hockey team, and Chelsea invited Liese to check out figure skating. Liese thinks it’s the perfect combination of being on the ice and dancing!
“I love being able to challenge myself while having the support of my teammates to pick me up (figuratively and literally sometimes)!”-Liese Piper, Revolution Ice Unity Skater
