About Us

Women’s Hockey Life (WHL) focuses on highlighting, promoting and supporting women’s hockey around the world at every level.

From youth and university hockey, to the pros and the beer league heroes—we cover it all.

We provide a one-stop resource for hockey players, parents, coaches, fans, and others involved in women’s hockey. We pride ourselves on delivering content with information, entertainment, advice, motivation and more from hundreds of contributors—if you have something to say about women’s hockey, we want to share it!

Our team is dedicated to enriching the lives of those in the women’s hockey community by providing resources to live your hockey dreams to the fullest.

President & Founder

Superwoman status is an understatement for our fearless leader as she navigates building a women’s hockey empire while raising toddler twins in Ottawa, Ontario.

Hawk is the reason we’re all here in our own little corner of the Internet. The idea for Women’s Hockey Life began over a slice of pizza in Switzerland—it’s where she decided how she’d stay involved in women’s hockey after retiring from a successful playing career with the University of Connecticut Huskies in the NCAA D1, Boston Blades of the CWHL, ZSC Lions in Switzerland, and even a stint with Hockey Canada, as well as an accomplished coaching career.

Fast forward 10+ years and Hawk has created and runs the leading women’s hockey website and community, along with multiple branches under WHL, to help give other women the opportunities she had (without the mistakes she made).

Graphic Designer

WHL is lookin’ sharp thanks to our graphic designer, Maddy. From social media and website content to more intricate marketing materials, Mads is our go-to designer.

Growing up in Newmarket, ON, Maddy played for the Aurora Panthers. While playing junior hockey in the PWHL, she was offered an opportunity to play ACHA D1 hockey at Lindenwood University-Belleville. Maddy majored in Mass Communications and jumped on board with WHL in 2018 to continue her passion for the game off the ice.

When she’s not playing hockey or designing for WHL, you can find her hiking, playing other sports, travelling or kicking back with friends and family.

Communications Coordinator

The stories of women in hockey come to life on Women’s Hockey Life thanks to our resident storyteller, Ashley!

After serving in the US Army for three years, Ashley was inspired to go after her dreams; she completed her Bachelors of Arts in English and went on to complete her Masters of Science in Communications in 2020. She also took up hockey in 2018, joining a women’s team in Alaska. Now, she’s using her talents and passion for the game to tell the stories that deserve to be heard.

In between covering the women’s game and playing hockey, you’ll find her training for half marathons, reading, and spending time with her husband and son.
