During her time at Stanford, Eubanks served as the team’s offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator with responsibilities such as in-game play calling, scouting opponents and coordinating practices. With her help, the Cardinal won four Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) championships, garnered multiple national top-10 rankings, set a school record for the most wins in a season in program history (16, 2011) and produced four MPSF Players of the Year and one MPSF Rookie of the Year. In addition, Stanford earned IWLCA Division I Merit Squad recognition in 2011.

Prior to her tenure at Stanford, Eubanks was an assistant coach at George Mason from 2006-08. During that span, George Mason collected the school record for wins in a season (12, 2008) and garnered the team’s highest national ranking in school history at No. 9. Eubanks served under current Stanford head coach Amy Bokker at both Stanford and George Mason.

As a player, Eubanks was a member of the Canadian Senior National Team from 2003-13, playing in three World Cups. Canada won the silver medal in 2013, with Eubanks serving as team captain. She was second on her team in scoring in the 2009 World Cup, helping the Canadians capture the bronze medal.

Eubanks enjoyed a successful collegiate career at James Madison from 2002-06 where she was a four-year starter and led the squad to three Colonial Athletic Association championships. The Patriots advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and ’06. Individually, Eubanks was an all-conference second-team selection and a member of the CAA all-tournament team in both 2005 and ’06. She was also named to the 2006 Virginia Sports Information Directors' Association All-State Team.

Raised in Englewood, Colo., Eubanks is the daughter of 1980 Pittsburgh Penguin NHL draft pick Steve McKenzie and was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada, while her father was playing minor-league hockey there.
