Why have you joined AMP? I chose to join the mentor program because of the great friendship between the people in women’s hockey. Also my experience from The Swish camp with all international players showed me how much you can improve players in women’s hockey in a short time. With a clear direction from the IIHF and their female director, Tanya Foley, more things have been done from the body of women’s hockey in the last 10 months than have been done in total of the 10 YEARS I have been involved in Women’s hockey. You can now see results and I enjoy to be in a process where you have more Yes we can attitude. This is going to be a great experience for me and I hope I can share some of my knowledge with the country and people I’m going to work with. I’m very thankful to the IIHF that they give me this opportunity.
