Tessa Bonhomme

Tessa Bonhomme is a highly accomplished women’s hockey player and a Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games gold medalist in women’s hockey. Tessa began skating at the age of 4 on a backyard rink built by her father. She played on boys’ teams until the area’s first all-girls hockey team was founded in 1998, and her very successful hockey career began. In addition to her accomplishments with Team Canada, she had the honour of being selected first overall in 2010-2011 by Toronto in the first-ever CWHL draft.

Away from the ice, Tessa lends her time to various charitable causes, including Ronald McDonald House.

Tessa talks about her McDonald’s experience

How important is your role as a McDonald’s Grassroots Hockey Pro?

Very important! It’s where I started my career and where my love for the game flourished. I have made many lifelong friends and learned so much about the game. I think it’s important for kids to develop a sense of teamwork and learn to be a strong individual within a team.

What is your favourite McDonald’s menu item?

The fruit Smoothies. McDonald’s had them at the Olympics! I couldn’t get enough of them!
