Co-Owner / Director of Business Development / Intern Coordinator
Born and raised in Nashua, NH where I attended Nashua High School South. I played four years of Varsity hockey before attending college at Suffolk University where I am currently studying Public Relations and Broadcast Journalism. I Joined Power Play Hockey in the summer of 2015 when my High School team put together a summer team. After working for the league for four years I was brought onto the ownership team. My goal with the league has always stayed the same and that is to help them become one of the largest adult hockey programs in the country.
Raised in Derry, NH where I attended Pinkerton Academy. I Joined Power Play in 2016. January of 2016 was the first time I had ever skated in an organized hockey game. My love and passion for the game brought me here. Coming into this league as a player and growing into the organization is what helps me bring fresh and new ideas to the table. These ideas along with input from other players in the league are what have helped us continue in our growth to become New England's Premier hockey program.
Lead Division Director / D Division Director
Born and raised in southern New Hampshire, I grew up a die-hard New England sports fan. I joined PPHL in 2015 as a timekeeper, and within weeks was skating regularly in skills sessions and soon thereafter, my first game. I enjoy being a part of a strong hockey culture where we focus on customer/player experience and growing the organization, as well as love and passion for our great sport.
C Division Director
I grew up in the North shore. A Veteran, I am a Mechanical engineer for BAE Systems. I started skating again at age 42 after 25 years after a friend dragged me to a stick and puck. After a few months I discovered PPHL’s Skills and Drills program in which I participated and joined a team in C Division shortly after. I have been playing in the C Division ever since and still attend the Skills and Drills session as often as I can.
