Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Health & Physical Education at Mount Royal University, while also pursuing my goal of representing Canada in skeleton at the Olympics. I was a competitive figure skater for 12 years. When I finished skating, I was looking for another outlet that I could express my athleticism and competitiveness. I remembered back to the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, where I saw Jon Montgomery win a gold medal in skeleton on TV. This was my first experience with the sport of skeleton.
On January 2, 2012 WinSport's Canada Olympic Park hosted an event called "Passport to Sport" and I went to try the sport of skeleton. When I got up to the tourist start, which allows you to slide the last few corners of the track, I was astonished to see Jon Montgomery. He was there giving tips to the beginners - how cool! After navigating corners 10-14 of the track, I fell in love with the sport. I finally got to slide from the top of the Calgary track in October of 2012. Ever since then, I have been sliding on the provincial team with the Alberta Skeleton Association.
My goals are to graduate in 2016 with my Bachelors degree. After that, I plan to pursue skeleton full time and hopefully be named to the National Development Team after I graduate. After that, I will continue to develop my sliding so that I can represent Canada internationally. After sliding, I will aim to start my career in the sport and recreation field.
