Anna Mollenhauer has joined Pacific FC as part-time operations support for the Powered by Pacific FC program. In her role, Mollenhauer will provide administrative support for Pacific FC’s Manager of Youth Operations, Giuliano Caseiro.
Below is Mollenhauer’s introductory message:
“Hi there! My name is Anna Mollenhauer and I’m from Victoria, British Columbia. I am a St. Michael’s University School alum and a recent graduate University of Victoria, where I studied Recreation and Health Education. Throughout my degree I had the opportunity to complete co-op work semesters at Sport for Life and ParticipACTION. Through these work terms, coupled with my studies, I gained extensive knowledge on long-term athlete development, multi-sport participation, and further strengthened my desire to provide sport and physical activity opportunities for equity-deserving populations.
I have always been passionate about sport and physical activity and growing up, I was fortunate to participate in a wide variety of sports and got to experience, first-hand, the positive impact that sport can have. I want to be a part of an organization that is working towards increasing the quality of health in children and youth in my local community, which is why I am excited to join the amazing team at PFC.
Field hockey has also been a passion of mine since I started playing at the age of four and it is a dream of mine to one day represent Canada at the Olympic Games. I had the honor to play 5 years for the University of Victoria while training and playing with the Canadian National team. I also enjoy working with children and have coached in the Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association for nearly 10 years.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking and baking, cycling, walking my dog and exploring the island. These hobbies help me stay creative and active, and I often find that they inform my work in unexpected ways. I’m excited to join the PFC team and continue to grow in the sport ecosystem while exploring new opportunities. Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit about me!”
Please join us in welcoming Anna to the organization!
