What is the biggest hurdle you have overcome to get to where you are today?
The decision to switch my athletic career from swimming to modern pentathlon. The experience of having to start an athletic career from scratch really humbled me. It has provided a lot of valuable life experiences that have helped improve not only as an athlete but as a person as well.

Best advice you have received?
If it won’t matter in 5 years, then don’t worry about it for more than 5 seconds.

When was the moment you knew you wanted to represent Canada?
As a kid, watching the Sydney Olympics on television. After those Olympics, my interest in sports took off and I was participating in all of the sports that my school had to offer.

Do you have any pets?
I have 3 Doves

What is your favourite thing about being on the road with your teammates?
Getting to share the experiences of competition and travel with them. These are the moments that we’ll reminisce about one day.
