Who has played the biggest role in getting you to centralization?
“So many people had a hand in getting me to this Olympic centralization, from coaches to teachers, family and friends, but my family had the largest impact. Not just my parents, but all of my siblings too. Everyone has made so many sacrifices to make sure I had any opportunity I needed growing up and their constant support means the world to me. Another person who has had a big impact is Carla MacLeod. She coached me at my first U18 worlds and had been a mentor and friend ever since. Being able to have that support from someone who has been through the same process has been huge.”

When did you decide you wanted to play for Team Canada?
“I can't put a date or an age of when I decided I wanted to play for Team Canada because I have wanted to represent my country for as long as I can remember. It has always been my dream.”

What is the most important thing hockey has given you?
“Hockey has given me endless opportunities, from traveling the world to being able to receive a scholarship at the University of Wisconsin, which I am very grateful for. I have learned so many life skills and have made friendships that will last far longer than my playing career, and that is the greatest thing this sport has gave to me.”
