Growing up in the small town of Windermere, British Columbia, sports were always an important part of my life and are what give me such a competitive drive. I live in Calgary and I spend most of my time training with my ski team and going to school at the University of Calgary. As the winters are very busy with travelling around the globe, the off season is very important for making strides in the gym and focusing on getting stronger. When I am not training I love to go back to windermere to be on the lake wake surfing, playing spikeball or hiking with my friends.
I am extremely lucky I have such amazing team mates that I am happy to call my friends. I have an enormous amount of support from my parents and close family; this has allowed me to pursue my dreams so I can strive to be the best. My passion for skiing is what drives me to work hard and give all aspects of my life my maximum effort.

My parents put me on skis when I was just 18 months old, skiing was second nature to me and it’s what I looked forward to every winter weekend I can remember. I was an alpine ski racer for 12 years before making the switch to ski cross, and haven't looked back. When I was 17 I decided to go to a ski cross camp to try the sport out and see if I could ever get comfortable with flying off jumps with three other skiers right beside me. Ski cross has the direct element of competition, plus features to make it a little more interesting so naturally, I was hooked. It is my second year on the National Development team, although my first year I was rehabbing a brutal compound fracture on my tibia that took my off the slopes for close to a year. Now that I am healthy I can push hard and work towards my goals. I am aiming to compete in the 2022 Olympics, and to be racing world cups regularly next season.
I am currently pursuing a business degree at the University of Calgary. I am very fortunate to be able to be a student athlete, but at times balancing the two can be very overwhelming. Getting an education is extremely important to me and I have really enjoyed the business program I am in. I am still unsure of what I want to do with my degree as I haven’t decided on a concentration but I am particularly interested in risk and actuarial statistics. I am excited to continue my schooling.
