She currently works as a TV analyst for Hockey Night in Canada, as well as TSN’s women’s hockey coverage.

Cassie talks about her McDonald’s® experience

What does it mean to be part of Team McDonald’s?

Being a part of Team McDonald’s since 1997 has meant a lot to me. First of all, you associate yourself with a great company who really cares about the athlete. You also associate yourself with a great group of people who want to make a difference in families’ lives through the Ronald McDonald House Charity®. I’ve received so much from supporting the Ronald McDonald House® of Southern Alberta, and enjoyed every moment supporting the McDonald’s brand.

What is your favourite McDonald’s menu item?

My absolute favourite McDonald’s menu item is the Egg McMuffin® sandwich. I used to stop in to fuel up on what I think is the best breakfast sandwich on many mornings before training …it’s even better than my husband’s and he makes a really good one. I also love the cheeseburgers…without pickles or onions. In and out of training, I often enjoy both items.

Cassie and RMHC®

I have met some of the strongest children and families who are tremendous examples of courage and character. To be able to spend time with the children and distract them from their unfathomable circumstances has been a very rewarding experience.
