More about I have been around sport my whole life. Born in Calgary in 1991, I’ve been training as an athlete since I was seven years old. I am currently 25 years old and I compete for Canada on the National Skeleton team. From the moment I first sped down the Skeleton track at Canada Olympic Park, I fell in love with the sport and knew I wanted to devote myself to training, with the goal of standing on the Olympic podium one day as a Skeleton champion. Though I started Skeleton training in 2010, my intense training and Olympic dream started long before then. In 1998, at the age of seven, I began training in Ski Jumping/Nordic Combined. I trained for 12 years in those disciplines - four years on the National team - during which time I had the opportunity to compete in several World Junior Championships along with Continental and World Cups around the world. Those 12 years as a Ski Jump/Nordic Combined competitor shaped me into the athlete and person I am today, and provided me with the competitive edge that fuels my dedication, determination and drive to be the best. I had the incredible opportunity to forerun the Ski Jumping events at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver – being part of the Olympics in that small way confirmed my unwavering desire to experience it as a contender athlete one day. Since my skeleton journey started years ago, I've received many accolades and will enter the 2018 season as Canada's #1 ranked skeleton athlete. Over the next several years, I will continue my pursuit of excellence by representing Canada in the World Cup tour, all while fighting my way to the Olympics in Pyeongchang, Korea 2018. Ultimately, it’s my goal to represent Canada in a competitive manner at the Olympic Games in 2018. I came so close to achieving this goal back in 2010; I'm determined to achieve it in 2018. I push past my limits every day since to ensure I don't miss this opportunity again. I have the talent and ability to get me there; yet, with no funding whatsoever, I lack the financial resources to take me to the top of the podium. Please join me in my pursuit of excellence and together we can make this journey a success.
