Cullis is no stranger to the OVA circuit, having now exercised all of her playing years as a member of both the EVP Eagles and Burlington Blaze, where she won Provincial Silver and Gold medals, along with a National Silver medal. A defensive anchor, Cullis has been capable of bringing her mental strength from her competition days and dedicate it towards coaching a young team.

Cullis expects her athletes to give 100 percent at all times, regardless of outcome. A personal goal for Cullis is to broaden her own knowledge on various drills and skill development. When asked about her reason for coaching, Cullis states that she enjoys taking all shes learned and applying it to help improve the next generation.
