Talking travel, movies and life with 3 of the best women’s hockey stars in the world!

Do you remember where you were on during the Sochi Olympics when the canadian women’s hockey team beat the US?  I do.  I was at the office where the screams of triumph could be heard throughout the hallways as we won the gold medal!

I have great respect and admiration for these incredibly driven female athletes. I was very honored, and not a little intimidated to chat with Meghan Agosta-Marciano, Haley Irwin and Catherine Ward about hockey, travel and life last week while on their way to a Reebok-CCM Hockey event.
