Sweezey, who was also the assistant director of Alumni and Parent Relations at the College for five years, served as a volunteer assistant coach during the 2013-14 season.

Sweezey previously coached girls at the high school level in her native Massachusetts. Sweezey was the junior varsity head coach at Reading Memorial High School in 2011-12, which was also her second year as a varsity assistant at the school. In 2010, she was the volunteer head coach of Reading Youth Hockey's U-19 junior varsity squad. During three summers between 2008 and 2010, Sweezey supervised and coached girls ages 14 to 17 at the USA Hockey New England District Development Camp.

In 2012, Sweezey established, operated and coached at a skills clinic in Reading, Mass., for girls between the ages of 5 and 14, and continues to run the Girls 4 Hockey clinic in the Burlington area in an effort to help grow the game for girls and women. In addition to developing practice plans and procuring the all-female coaching staff, Sweezey also performed marketing and advertising for the clinic while managing its finances. Between 2002 and 2012, Sweezey was the assistant manager at Reading's Burbank Ice Arena.

A senior captain for Saint Michael's in 2009-10 after twice serving as an assistant captain, Sweezey graduated tied for first in program history in career games (103), power-play goals (12) and short-handed goals (3).
