“I was the little kid growing up who saw a picture of the White House and said, ‘I’m going to be there someday,’” she said.
And she found her experience in the hockey world has been helpful while working for Quigley, co-chairman of the Congressional Hockey Caucus.
“It’s nice to be able to combine my love for hockey with politics in an office with probably the most hockey-focused Member of Congress,” Sisemore said. “I think it would have been better if I had been a Blackhawks fan, but he’s working on it.”
