SEPTEMBER 1, 2019

After four years as an amateur athlete and helping bring Coach Heather Hennigar’s vision of a high performance training group at the Hub, Vic City Elite was established. It was an amazing four years calling Victoria home, and I am beyond grateful for the experiences and significant growth I had as both a person and an athlete. It was a necessary chapter for me to: fill my tool belt with skills, development, experience, network, and exposure to high performance sport.

After a brave decision to follow my heart, in Fall 2019 I made the decision to go back to my roots and move training back home to Regina, SK. It was important for my daily environment to be surrounded by family, friends and my coach and mentor Al, who I have that magic connection with. With my tool belt equipped and my heart full, I am excited to be training and actively building my 2020 vision into a reality.
