She toured for 10 years, consistently delivering exquisite performances that brought audiences to their feet. During that time, she also won numerous professional competitions and frequently appeared on television specials. She served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and was one of the few artists asked to perform at both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Yamaguchi has also authored multiple books including: "Figure Skating for Dummies," "Always Dream," as well as New York Times Best-selling children’s books "Dream Big, Little Pig!," and "It's a Big World, Little Pig!."

Throughout her professional career, Yamaguchi has been a highly sought after corporate spokesperson and done work with Kellogg’s® and the American Lung Association. She is the creator of, Tsuya, a clothing line that delivers the style that fits every part of an active lifestyle. Yamaguchi’s victory on the sixth season of ABC’s "Dancing with the Stars" is another achievement in a career marked with golden success.

One of Yamaguchi’s lasting legacies will be her Always Dream Foundation ( founded in 1996.
