Originally from Canada, Belbin began skating at 2 1/2 because her mom was a skating coach. She went through five partners before teaming with Agosto. Agosto was born in Chicago, but he moved to Detroit in 1998 to skate with Belbin. They missed out on competing at the 2002 Winter Games, despite finishing second at the 2002 U.S. Championships, because of Belbin's unfinished citizenship process. They organized and skated in the 2005 Skate Aid for Tsunami Relief that raised $40,000 for tsunami relief in Southeast Asia. Belbin would like to become involved in broadcast journalism after her skating career is over.
