Throughout the month of March, we'll be putting the spotlight on some of the extraordinary women at Sportlogiq and will be sharing their stories with you. These women play a pivotal role in the success of our company and know what it takes to perform at the highest level.
The Sports and Technology industries are at their best when women are involved and we're here to show you why.
I started playing hockey when I was about 4 years old. Like most girls that go on to play at a high level, I began my career playing against boys in my local league. This eventually led me to play at the Cegep level. After that, I was faced with a difficult decision.
Being French-Canadian it would have been an easier path to stay in Quebec and compete at the university level. However, despite not being 100% fluent in English I decided to go a different route and take the SATs and apply to a handful of University Programs in the United States. I was pleasantly surprised to receive multiple offers from top-tier programs but ultimately decided to commit to St. Lawrence University where I played for 5 seasons.
After a surreal college experience, I accepted a coaching position at Colgate University because it was the logical thing for me to do at the time. I was no longer on the National Team, and I was getting the opportunity to make money while working in a world I loved. I really excelled in this new role and even had the chance to coach at different events with Hockey Canada. I do not regret the decision I made back then, but I am very proud of the one I made to go back to playing and put coaching aside to follow my dream to play hockey at a professional level.
