You have hockey players and people who like to play hockey. Ever since putting on skates for the first time at 3yrs old I knew I had to be on the ice. Playing hockey at 4 I knew clearly I was a hockey player. The competition, challenges and work ethic required to succeed push me to the next level. This has put me where I am today. This holds true both on the ice and in the classroom. I am an adaptable person who reads scenarios well. Whether its breaking up ice beating the defenseman to the puck, be an option for my teammate on a breakaway, or pick a pocket on the back check all are a small part of my efforts on the ice. Planning for the large assignment or test are all important to be successful in the classroom. I am coachable, teachable and a good listener. I am always looking to improve and master my skills. I enjoy the camaraderie of being part of a team. Sense of accomplishment as a team is important to me and know I play an important part of the bigger picture. As part of my journey in life, playing hockey at the collegiate level along with getting a solid education are goals I've set and will achieve.
