I’m originally from near London, Ontario, but I moved straight to Canmore 2.5 years ago and haven’t looked back. Since arriving, I’ve tried my very best to try all the mountain activities, from snowboarding/skiing, ski touring, ice climbing and cross country skiing to mountain biking, trail running, backpacking and some climbing. There’s nothing I love more than a big day in the mountains, but I’m also far more of an adrenalin junkie than most of my endurance friends – so I’m always looking for rad people to shred with on bikes!

I love to compete. I grew up synchronized swimming, switched to triathlons briefly and then raced in and won my first Ontario Cup mountain bike race in 2015. I moved to Alberta the following winter and bought my first bike and rode it into the ground (that thing wasn’t built for drops like the one in the photos). I’ve just upgraded to a proper trail bike and I can’t wait to see what’s possible on it. I want to take racing to the next level and I’m super excited for my first season with PGR!
