Anything else you would like to share: I am a product of SCDA.  After going to Skip Barber Race School in 2004, I started attending SCDA events that fall.  I have climbed the ranks from green on up till my colleagues basically said its time because I was already a PSIA (Professional Ski Instructor Level 3 Alpine and Level 1 going for 2 Telemark).  I had already been teaching since age 17 so transferring the skills to driving was a lateral move for me.
