I grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan. I went to St. John’s Elementary School and while I was there, a couple of hockey things happened. In Mr. Thiele’s Grade 7 class, the bulletin board was used to show the progress of all the teams in the NHL. And we watched the 1972 Canada-Russia series. The school’s television, mounted high on a portable stand, was wheeled into the corridor so all the students from grades 5-8 could watch the games.
Before I became a hockey mom, I was a golf mom. And as crazy as it sounds, golf cut my heart out. And maybe, just maybe, hockey saved me.
Other things you may feel are important: I went to Notre Dame College in Wilcox Saskatchewan. I have a Bachelor of Arts – Canadian Studies from the University of Regina – which was affiliated with Notre Dame when I went. I also have a degree in Journalism and Communications, also from the University of Regina. Most of my professional career has involved content, but little of it involved writing.
