What does being part of CAN Fund mean to me:
CAN Fund has helped me tremendously these past couple years but it goes beyond the funding. The network of athletes and the team behind the fund is what truly makes it so special. That is why I’m so excited to join the team. Not only will I be able to continue to help athletes work towards their dreams, but I will also be able to connect with the wonderful donors who make that happen.

Favourite quote:
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do

Best advice I have ever received:
Focus on what you can control.

Biggest lesson I have learned to get where I am today:
The biggest lesson I have learned is that you have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. The discomfort isn’t always great in the moment, but I’ve learned that this is when true growth happens, so it makes it all worth it. It’s something that can be applied in sport and outside of sport – there is always room for growth!

Why am I proud to be Canadian:
I love the beauty of our country – both the landscapes and the people. I’m proud to represent a nation that embodies diversity and kindness.
