Background
Originally from St. Albert, AB I have been a competitive track and field athlete from a very young age. In 1994 I moved to Vancouver, BC to attend Simon Fraser University to attain a BSc. in Kinesiology and in addition to competing for the Varsity Track & Field Team. In my four years competing I achieved 6 NAIA individual championship titles and was a member of 4 women’s team titles. After completing my degree I was introduced to triathlon and in October 2001, moving to Victoria, BC to train at the National Triathlon Center (NTC) to pursue a new career in Triathlon.
Now a resident of Victoria, I am a member of the Canadian National Elite Team and a Gold Level athlete with Pacific Sport National Sports Center and the NTC.
