I have an extreme passion for speed and power. I dedicated my university career to competing in CIS (Canadian Inter University Sports) track and field for the University of Regina as a sprinter for five seasons. While competing, I captured national standards and university sprint records such as fastest female sprinter in the 60 meter, 300 meter and 4 x 200-meter relay. As the top sprinter at my university I competed at a high level of competition finishing on top of the Western Conference in the 60-meter race. This lead to qualifying for Canadian track nationals where I competed in two Olympic trials for the 100 meters as well as 200 meters.
After achieving my Bachelors of Kinesiology degree and being one of the top CIS 60 meter sprinters in Canada I was approached by the Canadian Olympic Bobsleigh and Skeleton community to come compete for their winter sports development team. I moved to Calgary, Alberta where I spent my time training at the Canadian Winter Sports Institute with many Olympic Athletes working on my speed and power as a Bobsled and Skeleton Athlete. After competing with the Canadian Winter Sport program I finished 18th nationally in Skeleton and was placed on the North American Cup Circuit. Because of my achievements in sport, companies have reached out to me to represent them as their athlete ambassador for their brand.
I broke onto the football scene with a strong rookie season with the LA Temptation in the United States, competing in all five regular season games, helping propel the Temptations to a second place finish in the Western Conference. Posting a remarkable time of 4.75 in the 40-yard dash. From LA to playing for the Atlanta Steam in the LFL, I was named to the Women’s Worlds Canadian Football team. Playing for team Canada in the World’s Football Championship game in 2017 our team captured a Silver Medal.
I worked with Canada’s best Olympic coaches and apply this to my passion for training other athletes. I was driven to educate myself further to become a speed coach. I hold my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Certified Exercise Physiologist (CEP), as well as Certified Coaching Certificate Level 3. This allows me to work with elite athlete at the highest level. I am currently the University of Regina Rams Football Speed coach for their 2019 off season.
I have a background in Olympic lifting and am currently on the Saskatchewan Olympic Lifting team for 55kg and Saskatchewan Snatch record holder for my weight class. I will be competing at Olympic Lifting Nationals May 18th, 2019. This type of training is challenging to learn and I am happy to pass on my knowledge to others seeking more practice in this field of weight lifting.
With my athletic background, I have an avid interest in sports broadcasting and media. I was the Saskatchewan CFL Roughriders Game Day Host for their Binaural Season in the new Mosaic. I use my passion for sports to created media through story telling of athletes by interviews and written stories on my social channels. I work with brands to create content in creative ways with my own sporty twist.
Currently, you can find me as the Sask Junior Hockey League broadcasting host for their game of the month on MaxTV Local Stream. AND I will be dancing in Swinging with the Stars in Regina, SK part of a fundraiser for Hope’s Home May 4th.
