I began playing hockey when I was 8 years old. I was the only girl on a team of boys, playing for the Essex Ravens. At the age of 12, I made the switch to women's hockey. I played for the Windsor Wildcats AA teams until I was 16. I then switched over to the PWHL playing for the Southwest Wildcats.
I earned my way to a scholarship for the University of Windsor. I played hockey for the U of W from 2010 to 2015. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Kinetics. I began working for Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare as a Registered Kinesiologist for the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Stroke Rehabilitation programs.
I have continued to stay involved in hockey over the years working as the University of Windsor Women's Hockey Strength and Conditioning Coach from 2017-2021 as well as currently training the U18AA Windsor Wildcats.
Hockey has given me so many wonderful life skills and experiences with my teammates that I will cherish forever. I have made lifelong friendships and memories that I will take with me always.
