As a tradition, the town flooded the cranberry bogs each winter to create an ice skating rink. After signing up for lessons to keep up with her newfound friends, Alex quickly discovered her love of skating and just never stopped.
For the next 20 years, Alexandria Shaughnessy-Ronzio climbed the United States Figure Skating ladder, competing first as a Senior Ladies single skater, then Nationally for eight years as a Pair team with New Hampshire native James Morgan, culminating with a bronze medal representing Team USA at the U.S. International Classic.
She has performed in a number of professional shows including many outdoor venues and Christmas on Ice by Rand Enterprises & Productions, Inc. She was also a member of the World’s silver medalist Senior Theatre on Ice team, Forte of Boston.
Since 2008, Alex has helped youth and adult skaters alike learn to skate, gain confidence on the ice, pass level tests, and even take students straight through from program design to competition.
She is currently a staff coach at The Skating Club of Boston, Co-Head coach of the Preliminary Theatre on Ice Team, Center Stage of Boston, Assistant Head Choreographer for Ice Chips, Show of Champions, and the 2021 Co-Head Coach of The Skating Club of Boston’s Skating Academy Summer Camp.
Outside of the rink, you can find Alex spending time with her family and friends, relaxing on the beach, camping in the great outdoors, or volunteering with animal rescue organizations.

Alex is one of the most genuine coaches and people. I really like the way she corrects our technique, for example in pairs spins, in a way that is easy to absorb which has made a big difference in our performances.
—Luke, Student, Age 15, Ice Dance
Coach Alex has an approach that is a perfect balance of encouragement, challenge, and patience!
—Grace Huang, Parent of Student
Not only is she extremely organized, she also takes the time to plan out each individual lesson so the skaters time with her is always productive and efficient. Her love of sport shows each and every day and is infectious to all that have the joy and privilege to work alongside her.
Among Alex's many coaching talents, she excels in developing choreography appropriate for the skaters.
She deftly combines attributes of the music, the skater's ability, and the skater's inherent artistic skills to create moving programs for skaters of all ages.
—James, Parent of Student
Alex is a personable and professional coach beloved by our spirited granddaughter, not yet four years old.
