AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT: Kate-Lyn Briggs | Amherst, Nova Scotia



Tell us about yourself!

I’m Kate-lyn. I’m a 29-year-old stepmom to two boys and I’m from Amherst, Nova Scotia. I’m a cashier at Superstore (a grocery chain here in Canada) and I live and breathe hockey. I was in a rink for the first time when I was two weeks old and I never looked back. I don’t play as I have weak ankles, but I am a super fan and I idolize women’s hockey.

What made you want to be a WHL Brand Ambassador?

What makes me want to be a WHL Brand Ambassador is the fact that I love the women’s hockey lifestyle. I was born during during the 1990s, where when I tried to join a ball hockey team at my elementary school I couldn’t because I was a girl. I want to show girls of the next generation that they can do whatever they want to do. I want boys and men to think us women are equal to them in the game of hockey.

What are you most looking forward to as a #WHLAMBASSADOR?

The thing I’m most looking forward to about becoming a WHL Brand Ambassador is to spread the word and lifestyle of women’s hockey and to get to know the other ambassadors.

What’s something not a lot of people know about you?

Some of my hobbies are listening to music, hanging out with friends and family and collecting hockey cards. An interesting fact about me is that when I was younger, I knew all of the statistics of my local Jr. A hockey team.

If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?

Oh my goodness this question is so hard. I would probably have to say either Hayley Wickenheiser or Shannon Szabados. I grew up watching and idolizing both players. I adore goaltenders and think Shannon is a great person and player. I would pick Hayley because I would love to ask her questions about what it was like being the face of Team Canada women’s hockey for so many years.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given in hockey or in life?

Best advice I’ve ever been given would probably be to work hard for everything you want and if you do that then you can achieve anything.

What’s your dream for women’s hockey?

My dream for women’s hockey is that the players are seen as equal to men and that they receive the same pay as men. Also, I want the next generations to be able to look up to their idols such as I did with Hayley Wickenheiser.
