About Nicole

My name is Nikki! I'm the founder and CEO of PUCKer Up Sports. What started as a girl with a dream has expanded into something truly magical and I am proud of the family that we've created! When I'm not writing or talking about hockey (which isn't often), I'm probably traveling for a concert or a music festival. I love a new adventure and exploring other countries. PUCKer Up is my baby and I can't wait to continue providing great coverage throughout the NHL.

About Jess B.

Hi everyone! My name is Jess Belmosto and I'm the chapter head of Boston. I've been writing since I was a kid, but didn't start writing about sports until I got older. Growing up in New England means you've basically got sports in your DNA. I never thought I'd end up writing about hockey, but it's something I want to do for the rest of my life. I'm a college student in Boston studying to be a journalist. In my spare time I enjoy hiking and crafts. A fun fact about me is that I was born without a sense of smell!

About Jess D.

I’m Jess and at 27 years old, I am the self-proclaimed resident Grandma of the team. I’m from a small town that no one has ever heard of, Plympton, MA. I have four older brothers, so I grew up with sports embedded in my soul. I found my way to hockey and stumbled into writing about it. Football is my first love, and during football season you can bet your bottom dollar that I won’t make plans with you on Sunday’s unless the Patriots have a bye. When I’m not watching sports, or at the games, you can probably find me at the nearest country concert.

About Kelly

Hey everyone! I'm Kelly, a staff writer at PUCKer Up Boston. I'm a third year at the University of Virginia studying Psychology. I've grown up with hockey (this will be my 14th season playing!) and I'm so glad I finally decided to write about it. I'm from Northern Virginia so the Caps will always be my hometown boys, but as a fake New Englander (I grew up on New England sports, my dad's entire family lives up there!) I love my boys, the Boston Bruins. I can't wait to continue to grow my love of writing and Boston and my fake New Englander status!

About Hannah

Hey, I'm Hannah and I'm the photographer for PUCKer Up Boston! I'm a recent graduate of Bridgewater State University with a Masters in Criminal Justice. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Boston and fell in love with the Bruins through my mom's passion for the black and gold. My loyalty usually lies with the Bruins, but you can usually find me watching any hockey game because I genuinely love the sport as a whole.

About Lydia

Hi! I'm Lydia and I'm a write for PUCKer Up Boston! I've grown up with the Bruins and hockey in general and have played it for the past eight years. I love the sport more than anything, and I stumbled into writing about it just a few months ago, and I'm so glad I did! Outside of hockey, I love to fly-fish and spend my summers 94 miles from the nearest town in the middle of the Labrador Woods! I'm so grateful for this opportunity and I can't wait to watch PUCKer Up continue to grow!
