Ringette : I started playing Ringette at the age of 6 in Kitchener, Ontario. Halfway through my first season, I already knew my love was as a goalie. I played with the Kitchener Ringette Association until I went away to University of Toronto for school. While in University, I enjoyed stints with the Waterloo and Sudbury Ringette Associations, and eventually headed out west to backstop the Edmonton WAM! in the National Ringette League, where I play currently.
