Probably one of the most positive-minded individuals around. We’re fortunate to have the lovely Nadege Cormier playing in our leagues once again this year. You’ll find her hucking to strangers on the Ultimate field and dodging balls with Bazinga!aton-mebel
AF: Outside of our leagues, what else do you do (work/community…etc)?
NC: I work at Accreon as a Project Manager which is the most awesomest place to work! People are great, company is great, everything about that place is great! I also have a volunteer position as the Community Engagement Committee Chair for the Fredericton SPCA. I have a real passion for helping our community understand compassion and I truly believe that there is a real problem when someone can’t show compassion for a being as helpless as an animal. Because of that, I believe that’s the right place to start to try to eliminate abuse, bullying, etc. So, as you can now tell, I’m a bit of an idealist 😉 My motto is “…if you can’t help others, at least don’t hurt them. ” – Dalai Lama
AF: What’s a day in the life of Nadege like?
NC: My life is pretty standard… go to work, workout (I box in my home boxing gym and I’ve recently started Crossfit and I’m a HUGE fan!!!), spend time with my dogs and my spouse and spend as much time outside as possible (hiking, etc. )! Healthy eating is also a huge component of my life. A body well-fed and well-rested just works better to keep up with all of what I want to do! 🙂
AF: How long have you been playing in the local leagues?
NC: I started playing league in 2002 which seems like forever ago! I started playing in Moncton when the league consisted of about 10 people getting together at a random field. Then I moved to Florenceville where there was no league. I started one up and we had about 30 people playing. Then I moved to Fredericton and I’ve been playing here ever since!
AF: What’s your most fond memory from league over the years?
NC: My most fond memory has to be the Sotally Tober league party I hosted a few years back! It’s just to say that Ultimate goes well beyond the field! The game is amazing but the social aspect is just fantastic! A bunch of my Hucking Strangers teammates are going to get together for a game of paintball soon and I’m pretty sure this will go right up there in the realm of “awesome memories”!
AF: Can you sum up your league experience in one word?
Nadege has been a member of many of our sports leagues over the years and we’re glad to have such great support from her! Thanks for taking the time to chat with us.
