Field Hockey Background

My Life

being outside. My passion (second to field hockey) is to work with small bugs (bacteria) that live in and around rocks. My younger twin sisters Helen and Becky always keep things fun and high speed at home, while my parents - Anne and John - support and manage all the activities we have going on. Other than hockey I like reading a good book and spending quality time with friends.
