Wherever life takes her, Colleen Fink, a Bala Cynwyd native and Penn hockey field coach, always puts her personal and field hockey family first, writes Joyce Davis for The DP.

Fink was interested in athletics from an early age. She and her five siblings were raised by their father, who was also the track and field coach for Saint Joseph’s University, her alma mater.

Inspired by him, Fink began coaching at Archbishop Carroll High School. She then worked as an assistant field hockey coach at St. Joseph’s before transferring to Haverford College. She stayed there for five years, helping to solve some of the team’s pressing issues and even helping it getting a new facility.

But when she started coaching at Penn, she knew she found the place that was right for her. She has already been there for over a decade with no plans of either leaving or retiring from coaching.

“We’ve been able to create a culture of support and sisterhood and love within our program at Penn while still being able to be successful,” said Fink.
