"I love ski racing, it has always inspired me to reach for more. When I was young I had dreams of making the Alberta Ski Team (my Provincial team), which became a reality a few years later. Then it was the Canadian Ski Team, which again became a reality.

My dreams and visions continually changed as I grew up, but what remained constant was my desire to become always better. I am still striving for that, and my dreams still reflect that drive."


March 2018 - The last World Cup weekend of the season was a good one for me, as I qualified in the GS on Saturday and Slalom on Sunday. A big mistake in the second run of the GS pushed me back to 28th position, but otherwise was a great race for me. I finished the World Cup GS season ranked 32nd, my best yet. On Sunday in the Slalom race, I finished in 14th place, matching my best Slalom World Cup result of my career.

January 2016 - The Kitzbuhel weekend of racing was one of the most memorable of my 2016-17 season.  I started my first World Cup SG and Alpine Combined on the Friday, which was so fun, and then got my first top 15 in a World Cup in the Slalom race on Sunday!  I was 30th position after first run which made it very exciting second run for me as I stood in the leader box for a while.
