I graduated from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn. on May 22 as a print journalism major with a minor in fine arts-studio.  As a freshman from Chesapeake, Va., I walked onto Quinnipiac's Division I women's ice hockey team in 2007 and eventually earned a playing spot in the lineup.  I received an athletic scholarship my junior and senior years at Quinnipiac in addition to serving as the team's assistant captain my senior year.

I will be traveling to Mürzzuschlag, a town in northeastern Styria, Austria, on August 25 as part of fulfilling a dream in playing professional women's ice hockey.  As I am no longer a Bobcat for Quinnipiac's women's ice hockey team, I will soon gain a spot on the Neuberg Highlander's women's ice hockey team.

I will not only play ice hockey in Austria but I will work as an intern for an industrial company, voestalpine Stahl.  I plan to use this blog to share my experiences as I engage in a different culture during my eight months in Austria.  I plan to return April 3, 2012.
