TIPPY'S VIDEO PROFILE
Birthplace: Monterey Park
Year as a Power Player: 1st
Occupation: Figure skating instructor/Knott's Berry Farm ice skating performer
Career Goal: 2014 Olympics in figure skating. I want to be a Physical Therapist and Olympic figure skating instructor.
Why did you want to become a Power Player? I am a huge Ducks fan and I love the charity work the Power Players get to do.
What are you most looking forward to this season? Getting on the ice for the first time with my girls and twirling our orange Duck towels around, cheering on the Ducks.
What's your most memorable Ducks' moment? Besides the Ducks winning the Stanley Cup, it would have to be when the Ducks' appeared in the Finals for the first time. In Game 6, Paul Kariya got elbowed by Scott Stevens of the Devils. Kariya was on the ice motionless and had his teammates help him off the ice. At that point, everyone was thinking Kariya was done and the Ducks were finished for the season. Soon after, Kariya was back on the ice, he went flying down the left wing and took a slap shot for a goal past Martin Brodeur. The Ducks did not win the Cup that season, but that series was one of the most amazing ones
Favorite part about hockey: When a defenseman shoots from the blue line and snipes the goalie!
If you played hockey, which position would you want to play? I would like to be a defenseman so I can defend the Ducks and prevent the other team from scoring.
What do you do in your free time? I am usually watching my favorite TV shows like "Homeland," "Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" and "90210."
What's something unique about you that most people don't know? I am Hong Kong Champion in figure skating.
Personal style: I love wearing jeans and a knit sweater with a pair of Uggs.
What do you do to stay fit? I skate about three hours a day, and I do Hillary Skahan's (Fit OC Women) workouts every other day at the gym. Because I am so active, I make sure I am getting enough protein and water.
Most played song on my iPod: "County Girl (Shake It for Me)" by Luke Bryan and "Shake Your Tail Feather" by Murphy Lee
Three things I cannot live without: Creme Brûlée Waffle Sandwich from Bruxie's, Netflix, and ice skating
Guilty pleasure: Being lazy. Like in Bruno Mars "The Lazy Song":
Today I don't feel like doing anything.
I just want to lay in my bed.
Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything
Go to karaoke song: "Baby Got Back"by Sir Mix-A-Lot
#1 bucket list item: To walk in the opening ceremonies at the Olympics and skate at the arena.
Favorite sport to play: Skating, of course ;)
Favorite holiday: CHRISTMAS. Now that I am older and have a job, I can buy my family the stuff they want. I love how happy everyone is during this time of year. I definitely enjoy stuffing my belly with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, pigs in a blanket and PIE!!
Favorite season: Fall is my favorite season because the leaves change color and there is hockey and everyone starts getting ready for the holidays.
Favorite place in Orange County: The Rinks because I feel at home when I am on the ice.
Favorite Movie of all time and why? "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" because no matter how many times I watch it, it still makes me laugh.
