Favorite Sports Memory:
Putting on my first Canadian National Team unisuit.

Favorite Quote:
Perfection is unattainable, but if you chase perfection, you just might attain excellence.

CAN Fund Testimonial:
CAN Fund gives athletes the opportunity to create greatness. As a Canadian athlete trying to win a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games, it requires an extraordinary amount of time and dedication. This funding will allow me to focus solely on training and achieving a spot on the podium.

Best Result:
Gold medal in women’s 4x at 2007 PanAm Games, Silver medal at 2010 World Cup 3 in women’s 8+

Fun Facts:
I love animals and used to be heavily involved in equestrian (show jumping) from the age of 5. It’s the only other sport I have ever loved as much as I do rowing.
