I am a 30 year old athlete with the dream to represent Canada at the 2024 Olympic Games for the inaugural Kiteboarding event. I started sailing in Belleville, Ontario at twelve years of age. After getting accepted to Queen’s University, I joined the Varsity Sailing Team. In my final year I became the captain and led the team to two national titles.

After graduation I spent two years racing in the Olympic Class 49er sailboat. In 2017, I started a fast-track nursing degree and in the same year was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Despite the challenging blow to morale, I finished my second degree and returned to competitive sailing in the discipline of kiteboarding.

Since then, I have become one of the top riders in Canada while working full-time as a Registered Nurse to fund my campaign.

For 2022-23 I was named to the Canadian National Sailing Team and will continue to compete internationally with the goal to reach the 2024 Games. My 2023 season is off to a good start as I qualified Canada for the Pan American Games in Chile. That event is especially important as it is one opportunity to qualify for the Olympics.

With your help, I hope to represent Canada at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
