I have been playing hockey for most of my life and have continued to love it. When I was fourteen I decided to apply for a job coaching for a local rink of mine, Lasker Rink in New York, and teach introduction to hockey. Some of the girls I have coached have continued past this preliminary program and are now playing travel hockey. I recently returned from a semester school, the Alzar School, which focused on nature conservation and leadership development. All of these thing are applicable to not only hockey, but also my daily life.
