I am a 35 year old mother of two and have spent most of my life on the ice playing hockey. Years ago, at the age of four, I took to the ice and dreamed of playing in the NHL. At the mature age of six (LOL), I made the bold choice of becoming a goaltender. When I look back now I realize that choice has allowed me to come very close to fulfilling my dream. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled the world with my gear, I have won gold medals for my country, I have played professionally in the men’s minor pro leagues, I have practiced with NHL players in the off season (even after having my kids), and I have played in charity games with hockey legends. All of these experiences have highlighted my career and hockey has given me so many opportunities. As I now transition to my new career as a Firefighter with The Richmond Fire Department I realize more than ever what it means to give back. Being a part of The Longest Game 4 CF is giving me the opportunity to give back through hockey and I am honored to be playing for such a great cause. This 10 day event will be one of my most memorable hockey experiences and I can’t wait to hit the ice in hope of finding a cure.
