Carman and Reiss are the 2011 U.S. junior pewter medalists ... Teamed up in the spring of 2009 ... Carman previously skated with Christopher Knierim, with whom she won the 2008 U.S. novice title and 2009 U.S. junior silver medal ... Reiss skated with Jaclyn Famiglietti, with whom he placed fourth in juvenile at the 2008 U.S. Junior Championships.
Carman began skating at the age of 5 - "My mom would watch figure skating on TV, and I kept asking her if I could try it." ... Participated in the Basic Skills Program ... Formerly coached by Dalilah Sappenfield ... Won the Cherry Creek School District essay writing award in seventh grade ... Oldest of three children ... Enjoys reading, movies, shopping, spending time with friends and playing with her dogs ... If she weren't a figure skater, she'd want to be a model ... Many people would be surprised to know that she goes hunting with her family and she doesn't know how to ride a bike ... Biggest influence in her life is her father ... Mom was an competitive horseback rider who showed hunters and did equestrian classes ... Biggest life-defining moment was winning the novice gold medal at the 2008 U.S. Championships ... Has a passion for reading ... Would like to become a doctor or a newscaster after her skating career ... If she could have dinner with any one person, it would be Tyra Banks because "she is such a fabulous model and a great role model for girls" ... Listens to pop, hip-hop, classic rock and - yes - country.
