I am a 20yr old Cross Country Ski Racer currently training with the Blackjack Academy in Rossland BC. I have been a Saskatoon Nordic member since I was 10 and am a former member of Team HiPer.
Growing up in Saskatoon I progressed through the Jackrabbit program and quickly got into racing along with my brothers as we traveled all around western Canada to race and collect metals. I loved the training aspect to being part of the club, and racing was just an added bonus. In high school I played Volleyball, Basketball, Football, Track & Field and many more. During those years I always knew where my passion was, and in 2011 I made the Canada Winter Games team and raced as a member of Team Sask.
After high school I went to Collage, but I quickly found out that I missed competitive racing, and that I was not finished with it. Once I graduated the 2yr program with honors, I decided to chase what I loved. I moved to Canmore, Alberta and trained and raced with Canmore Nordic Ski Club.
After a very successful season of racing in 2013/14, I decided to join the Blackjack Academy for the 2014/15 season. Coached by former National Team head coach Dave Wood. Jeff Whiting, former Paralympic Coach, also coaches and mentors me.
This coming season I will be participating in the Canadian Nor-Am race series, Canadian Nationals, as well as representing Team Sask again at the Canada Games.
