As An Athlete

I have been involved in sport from a young age. I competed in track and field, volleyball and soccer until finding my passion for basketball.

I competed at four National championships as a provincial team member representing Alberta, winning one bronze and two silver medals during this time.

I am proud to have represented my hometown of Calgary, as a member of the University of Calgary’s Women’s Basketball team for five years. I was the captain of the team in my final two years.

During this time, I was nominated for female Athlete of the Year for the University of Calgary, awarded the Canada West Defensive Player of the Year which earned me a nomination for the top defensive player in all Canadian Intercollegiate Sport. This same year I earned a spot as a Canada West 2nd Team All-Star.

I successfully completed my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Exercise and Health Physiology from the University of Calgary and am now a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

Through my undergraduate experience, I realized I had a love for achieving excellence and helping others do the same.

Whether you are a stay at home mom wishing you could do more physically with your kids, a weekend warrior who rides 100+ km a week trying to manage those minor aches and pains that accompany an active lifestyle, or a young aspiring athlete looking for an that edge up on your competition, I want to help you all.

I continue to strive to deepen my knowledge and skills as an S&C coach by furthering my education. I have successfully completed a Master’s of Science in Strength and Conditioning at St. Mary’s University in Twickenham, UK and now look to collaborate with top S&C professionals and therapists around Calgary to further my practical development.

I will know I have achieved success when I have opened my own facility focused on collaboration between performance and sports therapy professionals. As well working with a handful of professional athlete’s full time.
