Favourite quote or words to live by.
The world is run by people who keep showing up.

What is the best advice you ever received?
If you’re excited about something, hold onto it and work towards it. If you lose the excitement, take time to revaluate to get back to a place where you’re enthusiastic and happy working hard.

Biggest lesson you have learned to get to where you are today?
To thank the people who gave you confidence in yourself. I lost a coach this winter and it was a few weeks after he’d helped me through some tough decisions. I think he knew, but I wish I had verbalized that he gave me the courage to jump into some difficult things.

Why are you proud to be Canadian?
I am proud and grateful to be from a country that lets me pursue sport and a country that holds itself to such high standards and values.
