Background

Prior to moving west to start Northland College's women's hockey program, I spent two years at Neumann University- the first year as an assistant and the second as the head coach. During that time, I helped lead the Knights to an ECAC West Semifinal appearance in 2013. I also served as an assistant for one season at UMass-Boston. Additionally, I spent three seasons coaching high school and prep school hockey in Massachusetts at Canton High School and the Southfield School.

I am active in USA Hockey as a coach and as an instructor in the coach education program. I have served as an evaluator and intern coach for the USA District and National Camps. I currently hold a level five USA Hockey coaching certification.

I played for Quinnipiac University from 2003-2007 and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor’s in athletic training. I then went on to receive my master’s in education with a specialization in coaching from Boston University. I am also a Certified Athletic Trainer (NATA/BOC) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA).

Why Northland?

I came to Northland for the unique opportunity to start a women's hockey program. I was drawn to Northland because of the supportive environment and the great people that work here and attend Northland College.

Student Involvement

I am Northland's senior woman athletic administer and I work closely with SAAC. I hope my unique background helps to serve as a resource for all students. I also work closely with Ashland Youth Hockey and look forward to having the women's hockey team as an active member of the community.

Personal Interests

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, taking in sunsets on Lake Superior, being active, meeting new people, and cheering for the Chicago Blackhawks.
