Why did you want to become a Power Player? I love hockey, the game, the energy and the fans!
What is your favorite part about being a Power Player? Meeting all of the fans and getting to know them, sharing the love of the game with them, skating with them, taking pictures. It has been an amazing experience and I can't wait to make more memories.
What are you most looking forward to this season? Of course I am most looking forward to getting the Cup back!
What's your most memorable Ducks moment? The first was when I made it on the team my first year and we got to skate on the ice at Honda Center for the first time. I looked up at the stands from center ice, and I told myself "I did this, I worked so hard to be here and I'm going to love every second of it." The second was home opener of last season. Words can't even explain how memorable that was. When the lights shut off, all of the orange glow sticks were on and that energy was in the air was indescribable. It gave me goose bumps!
Favorite part about hockey: The fights! And the comebacks (we tend to be really good at comebacks).
If you played hockey, what position would you want to play? I'm pretty sure I would want to be defense. The mama bear side would come out of me and I would be all over the other team defending my goalie!
Most interesting experience you have had as a Power Player: Falling on the ice along the player’s bench. We were playing Columbus, and surprisingly instead of laughing at me, they helped me up. It's till very embarrassing.
Favorite place in Orange County : The beach. Nothing beats a day relaxing at the beach with my family.
What do you do in your free time? I go to boot camp, hang out with my daughter, go to Disneyland, and I love to cook!
Favorite sport to play: Beach volleyball
Favorite season: Fall! I love the change in the weather, wearing sweats, making fires, Halloween and Yankee Candles!
Favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. I love cooking for people and making memories with my family.
What's something unique about you that most people don't know? I have had a broken back before, and I can't ever keep a plant alive.
Describe your personal style: I would describe it as classic, simple and comfy. If I'm not comfortable and cuddled in my clothes I won't wear it.
What do you do to stay fit? I work out four times a week, and I use our trainer Hillary Skahan's protein diet all week! Weekends are cheat days :)
What are some of the most played songs on your iPod? I actually don't have an iPod, I always use Pandora which is always on The Lumineers radio station or Calvin Harris station, depending on my mood.
What are three things that you cannot live without? My daughter, water and my hair straightener.
Favorite movie of all time: Scarface. I don't know why! I could watch that movie all day every day, and then I always walk around talking like Tony Montana afterwards.
