Molly Farber: Dream Skater
Molly began her Synchro career on the 2006-2007 Juvenile Team and had followed the blogs of older DREAM skaters so she was particularly honored when her coach, Geri Lynch-Tomich, suggested she apply. Now she will maintain her own blog, recapping the before and after of competitions and blogging on all matters synchro. Molly is carrying on the tradition of mentoring younger skaters and inspiring them to realize their goals.
She attended the Synchronized Skating Training Festival/Coaches College at the University of Delaware in July 2014 where she participated in a two-day ice clinic by observing and demonstrating different synchro skating styles and techniques with coaches and DREAM program skaters from all over the country.
It’s been about ten years since a very little Molly watched with dismay as her older sister had lots of fun at skating birthday parties and would not rest until her Mom agreed to take her skating too. They started with the Mommy and Me skating program where Molly fell in love with the thrill of skating (fast!) and never looked back. She’s really never been interested in another sport and has always had fun skating, first with Barbara Baron and Andree Baron and then starting as an eight year old with Geri Lynch-Tomich. Now, although she still loves synchro, she’s discovered a new skating passion — training and dancing with David Lipowitz and working on her pre-golds.
As a senior at Montclair High School, Molly is looking forward to college next year. Her off-ice interests include math and art leading her to investigate architecture as a possible career choice and she spent last summer studying at the School of Architecture at Northeastern University in Boston. But wherever the future may take this poised and articulate skater, it’s a sure thing there will be a rink nearby!
