A native of Little Canada, MN, she started figure skating at age two then discovered speedskating at age five through the Roseville, MN Novice program. At age seven, Krueger joined the ranks of Midway Speedskating Club. As a Midway skater she enjoyed a successful career with long track speedskating, winning multiple Age Class Nationals, multiple Category 1 achievements, and a 12th place finish in the 2006 Olympic Trials in Salt Lake City. In addition to long track, Krueger’s skating career also included short track and inline racing.
