As Louise Bertram, she and her partner, Stewart Reburn, were dubbed "the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers of the ice world"[citation needed] and were Canadian seniors pairs champions in 1935. Her partnership with Reburn ended in 1938 when he was spotted by Norwegian skater Sonja Henie[citation needed]. Her skating career ended shortly after that when she married Sidney Hulbig.
