CAN Fund Testimonial:
I’m speachless. I don’t know how to thank CAN Fund for helping me realize my dreams and achieve my goals. I’m so proud to be Canadian, to sing our anthem before every game and to let our fans take pictures and give our autographs. It’s one of the greatest things about being an athlete. Thanks again CAN Fund !

Best Result:
To qualify for the World Championships in the fall 2010.

Fun Facts:
I went to University of Montreal and finished my degree in Occupational Therapy three years ago. I’m a big fan of watching volleyball games, of course, and making videos with footage and pictures our team has taken. I’m not really superstitious but I like to have my little emergency pocket attached to my water bottle. This pocket contains some elastics, a lip stick, my lock number and a couple of hairclips. Just in case something happens !
