Smith College Ice Hockey


Sara Abrams

I majored in Architecture at Smith and then took a year off to work in the field. I took a few classes, applied to grad schools, and worked in different offices- one on long island, one in Charleston, and one in Israel. This fall I enrolled in a 3-year Grad program for a masters of architecture from UNC Charlotte.   I'm not currently playing hockey =( but I have all of my equipment in the closet ready for a pick up game when I find the time.

Melissa Millan ('06)

Melissa works at Morgan Stanley in New York, doing investment banking. Melissa plans to move to San Francisco in July, while continuing to work for Morgan Stanley. She is still playing hockey, played over the summer at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Her team, "Chicks with Sticks", won the Women's Division. She is signed up to play 4 on 4 coed ice hockey at central park this winter. Melissa is also learning to play squash. Contact email is

Kate O'Donnell ('05)

Kate graduated from Smith in 2005 after serving for two years as Ice Queen (scheduler for those of you not in the know) and two years as co-president with Julia Alesbury. She then moved back home to New Jersey to work as a teacher for children with special needs and to attend Teachers College, Columbia University for her M.A. in Educational Leadership. When she finishes up her degree in October '08 she will begin working on curriculum development for special education. She doesn't find much time to play ice hockey these days, but is well known for wearing her team t-shirt to the gym. All the best to the current team and all those who follow!!

I just moved home to Upstate NY where I am heading a team doing  some community revitalization work. Our first project is a multifaceted community center that will be have a youth-led coffee house, a local food market and an arts and resource center teaching classes on everything from resume writing and knitting to canning food and pottery. Once the foundation is finished, I will be the  project manager for the coffee house. During the day, I am substitute teaching and leading the youth group at the Unitarian Universalist Church here. if anyone is driving the Thru Way or up Route 8, stop in and visit! I can be reached at
