I live in Vancouver British Columbia Canada with my husband Gary and two teenage boys -Ocean and Sky. I work as a lifeguard on the beaches in the summertime. I grew up a competitive swimmer and went to university of Hawaii on a swimming scholarship. I've competed in many different water sports including ocean swimming, surf lifesaving, stand up paddleboard racing, outrigger racing, and  surf ski racing. I love spending time on the ocean, especially with the prone posse..Brad, Shauna and Nicole. I love my family so much! And catching a wave is the best feeling :):) I am happy to complete in both prone races for the first time!

Hello, This is my third ISA World Championship competing for Canada. I'm thrilled to be here competing in the SUP sprint,and prone events. Although I am competing in the prone competitions I am a rookie in the sport and specialize in sup distance racing. Currently ranked 8th in the professional APP World Tour.  Michael Booth is my coach and mentor. My goal over the next couple years is to win a SUP World title. Also, please give a shout out to legendary stand up paddle coach currently fighting cancer and undergoing intensive chemo, coach Mike Eisert in Dana Point, he needs the help of the stand-up paddling community after giving so many years of his life coaching and volunteering. You can send $25 donations to my PayPal that will go directly to paying his hospital bills.  Paypal: [email protected]  Venmo: 8088007517

Surfing came later  into my life but I am completely obsessed with it. Being a competetive athlete most of my youth through football it was always a dream to be high level athlete later into life.  It is a bit surreal that I am able to represent Canada in an international event. Was a dream for a while and was not sure I would be able to do it.  So excited it happened and  Coming with the intentions do what I can as a competitor but primarily   to learn from the experience and other great water people and take the knowledge into my own coaching.
