Why have you joined AMP? I have loved watching the growth of women's hockey over the years. It is an amazing sport which I am thrilled to help grow even more, especially at the international level. I am honoured to be a part of this group, which will have a critical and lasting impact on the game. I can't wait to see what the future holds for women's hockey!
