I have been playing ringette for 23 seasons. I spent 9 years in the AA program from Tween to Open and was a member of Calgary RATH in their inaugural season in the NRL. I have won a bronze medal at the 2002 World Ringette Championships in Edmonton, Alberta with Team USA, and was the Captain of the 2003 Team Alberta Canada Winter Games team. I spent a single season with the U of C Dino's and captured gold at the University Challenge Cup. I have won 6 Provincial Championships, 1 Western Canadian Ringette Championship, and have been a two time gold medal winner at the Canadian Ringette Championships (2000 & 2001). In 2013 I was a Captain of the NRL Championship Calgary RATH, who brought home the title after a nail-biting overtime win versus the Winnipeg Prairie Fire.

I began coaching ringette in 2004 at the U7 level. From 2005-2009 I was Assistant Coach at the U14AA level; receiving one Provincial Championship and a second place finish at the Western Canadian Ringette Championships in Medicine Hat, Alberta. I was the Assistant Coach to the University of Calgary Dinos in the 2013-2014 & 2014-2015 seasons.

In the summer of 2008 myself and Hope Boychuk created BiLt RT to fulfill our passion for ringette, fitness and coaching.

Outside of playing ringette and being a part of BILT, my passion is travelling. By the time I was 25 I had been to 26 countries on 5 of 7 continents on the planet. When I am at home, I focus my time on keeping a balanced mind and body through yoga (hot is my favorite!!), spin, running out doors with my dog, Brier, and watching my husband play rugby for the Calgary Saints.

Career Highlight: National Championship Final in Fredericton against Winnipeg Prairie Fire. We were down 5-2 with 12 minutes left. Shaundra Bruvall put the team on her back by scoring a cluster of goals. She finalized her hat-trick to tie the game in the final 2 minutes. Amelia Hradsky went on to complete the most epic comeback with her overtime championship winning goal with 4 minutes left in OT

2016-2017 Team: NW U19A GRIT

Career Highlight: I’m not sure if this counts as a highlight but after our team suffered the loss of Meghan (Bomford), we really came together as a family and helped each other out. Being on a team that has been through so much and has still managed to have a great season with 5 (and counting) medals, and being first in our league has really just shown me how strong our ringette family is. This was by far the strongest team I’ve been on, both in actual skill, and in the way we support each other and even through everything that has happened it’s been an amazing year.

Career Highlight: I'd have to say the highlight of my career so far was winning an Individual Achievement Award for Defensive Player of the Game in the CRC U19 gold medal final in 2012. Our team lost the final but I will always remember that game because I was put in after an early 3-goal deficit in just the first 5 minutes of the first period. I got scored on on my first shot too, but the second shot I made a huge save on a one-timer and from there our team took the momentum back and clawed our way back into the game, making it a real competition up until the dying minutes. Despite the disappointment, I think that game really showed me the passion I have for this sport, and it's my career highlight because it was a pivotal moment for me where I went from simply playing to play to playing with a drive to be better every time I'm on the ice.
