I was born and raised in Whistler, BC. Living in Whistler opened my eyes to the great outdoors and encouraged me to live an active, healthy lifestyle. I was put on skis at 2 years old and have kept at it until this day. I went through the Whistler race program all through high school and the year after. I then carried my racing experiences  on to the sport of Ski Cross. In December, 2007 after 3 selection camps, I was named to the Canadian National Ski Cross team along with 3 other women and 6 men. That is where it all started.
