I am a Canadian middle distance runner from New Westminster. Sports were a big part of my life growing up, mainly doing track, basketball and lacrosse. Running is something I have always enjoyed doing and was one of my favourite aspects in all the sports I played.

In high school I ran the 400mH but it wasn’t my single focus. Lacrosse was a big part of my life then and it wasn’t until I went to UBC that I decided to focus on just track. In University I ran for UBC, my coach introduced the idea of competing in the 800m to me and since then it’s been one of my favourite events, apart from the 400mH, which I recently started doing again. At UBC I came 4th in the 800m at nationals as well as a 2x 800m-relay NAIA national champion. I also added cross country to the mix, helping the women’s UBC team win NAIA national cross country championships for the 3rd year in a row, coming 29th individually.

Running has also given me multiple opportunities to travel around the world, including Poland, France, New York, and various other places in the US and Canada.
