PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Hey Friar fans, it's junior Mimi Beck here, currently #9 on the Providence College Field Hockey team. For our Meet the Friars/Alumni Update, we each got the opportunity to chat with past players about their experience at Providence.
I interviewed Kim Robbins, a 1995 PCFH grad who also shared my uniform number (#9). For the last fourteen years, Kim has worked at Reebok in their marketing department. This is what she had to say about her experience with Providence Field Hockey:
Mimi: What do you wish you knew during your time here to make you more successful?
Kim: I wish they had a mentor program with former student athletes when I was at PC. I think it is a great way to connect with individuals with the same interests, and an opportunity to network even before you graduate.
Mimi: What was your favorite field hockey memory?
Kim: The four BIG EAST Tournaments we played in. Also the away trips we had as a team (the Michigan trip and watching Michigan vs BC football and William & Mary vs ODU, when we went to Busch Gardens). It was tons of fun traveling, playing and participating in other activities with the team.
Mimi: What, if anything, does the program have now that you did not have when you played?
Kim: A turf field, our own locker room, fantastic workout facility and top of the line athletic training facility.
Mimi: What does it mean to you to be a PCFH alum?
Kim: It is something you have for the rest of your life. The experiences, people you meet, a connection to a "family" and the opportunity to be involved and help out future PC field hockey alumni.
Mimi: How has your experience playing field hockey for Providence helped you in your endeavors after graduation?
Kim: I think playing any sport further prepares you and gives you an advantage in your future professional and personal endeavors. It teaches you communication, how to work with others, patience and motivation and prepares you to handle challenges no matter what they are.
