I grew up playing hockey in England, where my dad had a 10-year professional career as a goalie and inspired my passion for the game. At 13, I moved to Canada for three years to further my development. Last year, at 16, I moved to America to play prep hockey at New Hampton School, which has been great for me in all respects.
On every team I have been part of, I have always strived to perform at a high standard, to stay calm under pressure and never let my team down. In my Midget year, I recorded some of the best stats in the HEO, finishing in the top five goalies in the league. Last year, as a sophomore, I came in expecting to back up the senior goalie, but eventually won the starting job, going 11-4 through the second half of the season and into the playoffs. Last summer, I was proud to be selected to represent my country in the U18 1B division World Championships, where I helped our team win our only game in my first start, against the home team, Hungary. This fall, I am playing with the U18 Militia team and off to a good start with a 5-1 record and 2.1 GAA.
Off the ice, I contribute a sense of diversity coming from England and aim to be a first-generation college student, just like my sister who is at Brown, playing field hockey goalie and studying neuroscience. After leaving home at 13 to pursue my goal of becoming a American college hockey player and earning a degree in economics, I am excited for the future.
