“I’m super excited to be joining the line-up for DOI! I can’t wait to get out there on the ice and start training. While the news agenda is already pretty busy these days, I know life is about to get a lot busier… with a few bruises along the way!”

Since then, she has posted regular updates on her social media channels which have showcased the progress she's making and how she's finding the process so far.
