A four-time Olympic medalist, and Harvard University graduate, Angela Ruggiero was just 18 when she won Olympic gold in 1998 - the year women's ice hockey made its debut in the Olympics. Ruggiero also became the first famale non-goalie to play professional hockey in the United States.
Ruggiero appeared as a contestant on the sixth season of the NBC show, "The Apprentice," and despite being "fired" late in the game, she impressed Donald Trump with ingenuity and business skills, resulting in an offical offer from the real-estate tycoon.
A prominent member of the IOC's Athlete's Commission and Coordination Commissioner for the 2016 Youth Olympic Games, Ruggiero is a seasoned speaker, having presented to various corporations and international groups.
