Gigi Marvin

Hockey

Garden of Life Brand Ambassador Gigi Marvin hails from Warroad, Minnesota – aka “Hockey Town USA” which has produced the most professional and Olympic hockey players in the United States. A forward with the Boston Blades professional hockey team since 2011, she also plays for the Women’s U.S. National and Olympic Hockey Team. (jersey #19) She holds four gold medals with the U.S. National Team in international competitions and was a silver medalist in the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Games.

I’ve been on Team USA since 2006 and have won two Olympic silver medals (’10 and ’14) and won four World Championship gold medals (’08, ’09, ’11, and ’13).  I also play for the Boston Pride of the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL).  The NWHL is the first North American women’s professional hockey league that pays its players.

Hockey runs in Gigi’s family and her grandfather was the coach for the men’s U.S. National Hockey Team. We wanted to know a little more about her life on and off the ice, so she answered a few questions for us recently.
