Field Hockey Background

My mom, Sue Jameson, played on the National Team in the 1970's, so I grew up around the sport. I started playing with the Vancouver Hawks Field Hockey Club when I was 8.

Former Teams: UBC Thunderbirds

Coaches: Louis Mendonca, Paul Bundy

Favourite Moment with Team Canada

Cranking the pre-game tunes and watching the entertaining locker room dance party that ensues.

Proudest Moment

Finishing 6th in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India, and sharing the experience with longtime teammate and friend Stephanie Nesbitt, who retired following the tournament.

My Life

I come from a sporting family - my mother, Sue, played on the Women's National Field Hockey Team, my father, Morley, played badminton for the UBC Thunderbirds, my brother, David, plays for the Men's National Field Hockey Team, and my sister, Katie, plays field hockey for the UBC Thunderbirds. I grew up playing every sport I could; including gymnastics, softball, ringette, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and soccer. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, quoting movies and drinking lattes.

Education

University: University of British Columbia (2007)

Degree/ Major: Bachelor of Human Kinetics (Minor in Commerce)

Advice for aspiring athletes...

When in doubt lace up your shoes and get out the door - the runs you least want to do are the most important.

Role Model

Former Vancouver Canuck Trevor Linden, because of his effort, skill, leadership, and humanity off the ice.

Favourite Quote

"What matters most is how you see yourself."

Interesting Facts

1. I won the 2009 Vancouver City Chase with my City Chase teammate Derek. This qualified us to compete in the North American City Chase Championships, where we finished 5th.

2. I used to be terrified of flying. I attribute my ability to calmly get on an airplane to the number of flights I have had to take while playing for Team Canada.

3. My favourite snack is Vector and yogurt.
