Biography

A goaltender, Chanda Gunn played college hockey at Northeastern University where she was a three-time finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Award, given to the nation’s top college hockey player, and a three-time finalist for the NCAA Female Sportsmanship and NCAA Humanitarian Award, the only person ever to be considered for all three awards. In 2004, she was given the College Hockey Humanitarian Award. Gunn played for the US at the 2005 Four Nations Cup and helped them win a gold medal at the 2005 World Championships. Gunn started her college career at the University of Wisconsin but left in the middle of her freshman year to help deal with her epilepsy, a disease she has had since she was nine-years-old. She serves as a spokeperson for the Epilepsy Therapy Project, and often speaks to children’s groups for kids with the disease. She has worked as a goaltending coach at Northeastern, but continued to play through 2009, being one of the final cuts for the 2010 US Women’s hockey team.
