I’ve always been competitive and into doing almost any athletic endeavour, from volleyball to basketball to triathlon. Sport is a huge part of life and something I believe everyone should have access to. After spending a few years of my life over in Tanzania I’ve come to view the ability to participate in sport as a massive privilege. Therefore even on the days when training is hard and the pool is super cold at 5 am I try to remember to be grateful for the opportunity given to me. Also, as much as I enjoy triathlon I don’t see it as an end goal, merely an opportunity to see how far I can go in elite sport. Thus I am continuing my university degree while training full time and have plans to enter medicine when I decide to leave the sport one day. As far as values go around sport and life I’ve always valued perseverance – both from my own past experiences with injury and my own views on sport and life in general.

I’ve lived all over the world having grown up in a small town in Canada as well as Tanzania, Uganda and Peru. Living in so many unique and different places has helped me realise my passion for mission work as well as helped me to be able to adapt to ay situation I might find myself in. Training in these places was tough and it took a lot of ingenuity and motivation to create exciting training I could undertake alone. Because of this, my passion for triathlon is deeply seated – I’ve put a lot into the sport but also gotten a lot from it. In saying this I don’t see my individual success in triathlon as the ultimate goal – it’s merely part of my journey and although I love it I do plan to have a life and career outside of sport – hence the current university study. I value creativity and commitment due as these are qualities that have helped me succeed through in any environment I might find myself in.
