Aimie Wallace grew up in North Delta, B.C. and began playing hockey at the age of 7. She played ‘boys hockey’ because at the time, there were no girls teams. Aimie developed her strong skating and hockey skills from being enrolled in various male oriented power skating programs and playing in organizations with boys her age.
At age 15, Aimie was playing Sr. AAA women’s hockey.
Her parents took the roles of coach and female hockey development advisor, which later helped to create possibilities for girls to play on female hockey teams.
Aimie’s Mom, Karen Wallace, played a pivotal role when it came to promoting and growing Female Hockey in BC. Karen represented BC Female Hockey Development, which was not only recognized in British Columbia but all of Canada.
In 2019, Karen Wallace was inducted into ‘The BC Hockey Hall of Fame’.
Due to Karen’s dedication and tireless efforts, she was the catalyst to effect change in ‘girls hockey’ and the reason why girls in Canada are able to lace up their skates and participate in the sport of hockey with equal opportunity.
Aimie played at a National level for over 15 years, taught power skating, learn to skate programs, ‘trialled’ for Canadian Women’s World Hockey, and coached Junior Girls. Aimie’s dream was to play a sport that she loved and be paid for it; however, hockey was not a sport that women were paid to do. Aimie then transitioned into playing golf. Within 3 years of playing, she became a CPGA Golf Professional and pursued her career in the industry for 8 years as a teacher and player.
Aimie’s passion is wholeheartedly in playing sports along with coaching nutrition. She continues to play golf and hockey at a recreational level and is passionate about her business, ‘AIM Wellness’; whereby, she is dedicated on focusing on balancing individual needs based on their personal specifics. Some of which include: nutritional teaching and coaching, functional nutrition, bodyweight training, and recovery programs. One of Aimie’s many strengths is her devotion to ‘giving back’ serving women in health, athletic development and personalized sport performance.
