A competitive nature and a love for the sport of sailing are two of the characteristics that define who I am.
Growing up in Kingston, Canada, the freshwater sailing capital of the world, I've been sailing as long as I can remember and began racing at just 8 years old. Competing in world championships and winning national titles, my passion for the sport continues to develop as I strive to reach new heights with my eyes set on the 2028 Olympic Games.
Beyond competition, I am currently pursuing a degree in engineering at Queen's University. I am dedicated to inspiring future generations to fall in love with the sport and continue Canada's sailing legacy. I am an avid speaker for keeping our waterways clean and encouraging more sustainable practice in sport and day to day life.
As a member of the 2023/2024 Canadian Sailing Youth Squad, I'm excited to compete at the U21 World Championships in Morocco this fall and the Paris 2024 Olympic qualifier in the new year.
