NHL Ice Girl of the Day

1) When and how did you get into hockey?
A: Honestly, I really got in to hockey when I began skating on the Blue Jackets Ice Crew three years ago. I was a figure skater for about thirteen years prior to joining the Ice Crew, I have cousins and friends who play hockey and saw my fair share of hockey practice and games while training at the rink, but I never truly appreciated the spirit of the game until I became engrossed in the community!

2) Who is your favorite hockey player of all-time?
A: Teemu Selanne

3) If you could meet any current hockey player, who would it be?
A: Milan Lucic seems like a nice guy. (haha)

4) What are some of your hobbies and interests?
A: I’m a second year law student at OSU, so I’m pretty busy! In my down time I enjoy reading (I devoured Game of Thrones), going to concerts, and binge watching TV series – particularly Wilfred and Archer! I also have my BA in Philosophy and love a good debate!

5) What’s the funniest thing about being an NHL Ice Girl?
A: The first year I was on the Ice Crew they had the promo team members throw T-shirts into the stands before games. I have no arm and could hardly ever make it over the glass! Perhaps not as funny to me as it was to everyone else…Otherwise, there is never a dull moment on the Blue Jackets promo teams. My coworkers and employers are such an entertaining, energetic bunch – going to work is always a blast!

6) Did you play organized hockey growing up or if not would you be interested in learning to play?
A: I have some friends playing on club teams and intramurals and would love to join them. However, being on the Ice Crew has made me respect the difficulty of the sport, I’m not sure if I’m coordinated enough to be up to the task!

7) How many seasons have you been an NHL Ice Girl?
A: Three so far, I’m trying out for the 2014-15 season so hopefully four!

8) What do you love the most about hockey?
A: The community. Our fans are incredible, my employers and coworkers are extremely supportive, and the players are such an inspiration!

9) What would be your dream job?
A: If the whole attorney thing doesn’t pan out, Ice Cream Taste Tester would be a nice alternative.

10) How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
A: What, only three?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
