Former D-1 NCAA goalie pursues her passion at CFS Leitrim
By Mélanie Renaud, PSP Ottawa
Finding Jessica Moffat-Brozincevic at the gym is quite easy; simply search for the tall female PSP Fitness and Sports instructor who is wearing a headband – her signature accessory she is rarely seen without.
Energetic and outgoing mother of three, a 7, 4 and 1 year old, Jessica has been passionate about hockey since she first laced up her goalie skates at the age of 13. Though this seems to be a late start to the game, Jessica excelled as a goaltender playing in her male competitive high school team before being selected to play four years of D-1 NCAA female hockey in the USA. She played her first two years in Ohio and moved on to play for St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY where she completed her Major in Psychology and Minor in Sports Studies and Exercise Sciences.
Upon her return to Ottawa, Jessica continued to pursue her love of sport and fitness and joined PSP as a Fitness and Sports Instructor almost nine years ago, currently serving the CAF members stationed at CFS Leitrim. She participates in men’s recreational hockey, enjoys softball in the summer and can often be found joining in the ball hockey and pickle ball games with CAF members at the station.
When it comes to working out, Jessica’s passion started when she was training for hockey. She enjoys variety in her workouts and will do everything she can to train outside when weather permits. She alternates weight, interval and circuit training along with her sport participation and she takes full advantage of the BeaverFit on site at Leitrim, when it’s not covered in snow…
She loves helping clients with their sport-specific performance goals, whether it be to increase speed, agility or power, for a multitude of sports or activities.
Jessica’s tip for fitness success is consistency. She admits to struggling with consistency herself, what with a busy work schedule and three young kids at home, but she believes that it doesn’t matter what activity or sport you choose; as long as you can have fun and be active every day, your health will benefit from it.
