The Questionnaire

What do you love most about hockey?

I have always loved sports and being active, but hockey is special because you get to be a part of a team, something bigger than yourself. And succeeding as a team is much more rewarding.

What do you love most about playing in the NWHL?

I am truly just so thankful to have a place to play after college and I love our fan base of young girls. That’s why we do this – so they can see that their dreams can turn into reality. And hopefully we will have perfected everything and grown by the time that they reach this age so the NWHL will be bigger and better than ever.

Favorite holiday?

Christmas. Could not even tell you why, but probably because it is the holiday that has the most potential for the entire family to be together. Both my sister and I went to university in the U.S. and we only really got to come home for Christmas. So, that is our most family oriented holiday. I also love Christmas music and Christmas treats haha!

Favorite musicians?

Hozier and Ed Sheeran


CHOCOLATE (dark specifically)


Does oatmeal count?

If you could, at what store would you max-out your credit card?

Probably lulu lemon.

What would you say to someone who is considering being an NWHL fan but hasn’t made the commitment yet?

Just try it once. I think people underestimate the speed and intensity of the women’s game, but usually it only takes hockey fans who have never seen the female game one game to become hooked.
