Things I Am Passionate About
I love sharing my story with students and encouraging them to dream BIG! I love to give back any way I can to the community that gave me so much. I have done public speaking engagements for a number of schools and sports teams throughout the Yukon and Canada. This year, I am excited to be a part of Classroom Champions.
Fast and Female
I am passionate about promoting a healthy, active lifestyle through my love of sport and my love of the outdoors. I am involved with the Fast and Female program as an ambassador. The organization’s goal is to support, motivate, inspire and empower girls ages 9 to 19 to stick to sports and the healthy lifestyle. Fast and Female creates “Empowerment through sport” for girls by hosting fun-filled, non-competitive programming led by female Olympians.
Zach Bell and I created the Northern LYTES program which stands for Linking Youth to Elite Sport. This is a program that provides opportunities for young athletes and coaches in the territory to access training from Canada’s Olympic athletes and professional coaches, by bringing those experts to the Yukon to host camps. It has been very successful so far, and had a wide reach to many of the Yukon's up and coming athletes.
I also have a passion for good food and good coffee. I create homemade, healthy meals every day, and make sure to have a nice cappuccino to get me ready for training each morning. I also enjoy baking sourdough bread.
