Today's guest is Jen O’Brien, the Executive Director at the American Special Hockey Association, or ASHA as it's called. Jen serves nationally and her advocacy supports organizations and athletes with special needs as they strive to achieve their goals with the coolest game on ice. During her tenure with ASHA, Jen has helped them grow to support over 100 established special hockey clubs throughout the US and she has also grown over a dozen new ones. As awareness increases about special hockey so will opportunities for more people to become involved and actively help grow access to the sport they love. I have personally known Jen for over a decade and she is truly a giver and always looking to help others. I cannot wait to share our conversation with you.
