“She shoots, she scores” – is still something I say from time to time when one of my players scores. This moment of excitement with teammates and friends is something I love to be a part of. Before I was joining in on the excitement as a coach, I loved being part of the moment as a player. And before loving those moments as a player, I was joining in on the excitement from the sidelines as I cheered on my parents, family members and friends.
Growing up, I watched my parents be part of teams, as players and coaches. They always displayed commitment, dedication and discipline with each team. Watching them taught me many lessons growing up, which have helped me to become a better teammate, player, friend, student, leader and police officer.
I now spend my free time playing ice hockey, ball hockey, baseball, and volleyball. When I’m not playing sports, I enjoy coaching hockey.
There are many aspects of sports that also relate to my career in law enforcement. Being honest, fair, equal and respectful are all qualities that are important to me both on the ice and in uniform.
