Fun Facts

What I love about rowing

I feel at peace on the water. I love racing as I am uber competitive and I love the friendships I have made. I have met people from all over Canada and rowing has given me the opportunity to travel to Mexico to train and compete for Canada at CanAmMex. It has also allowed me to travel to BC twice for the National Championships. Rowing also gives me an excuse to eat as much food as I want!

Inspirational quote

"Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not remotely interested in just being good." - Vince Lombardi

Hobbies

Running, biking and downhill skiing (in the winter I coach U16 downhill ski racing).

Favourite place to race

St. Catharines
