Favourite Competition Moment
Winning gold in the BC Winter Games in Vernon in 2012. I won eleven fights and lost none! It was the culmination of my hard work and training that had finally paid off! I was so pumped! Everything had come together and all of the reasons why I was in Judo were clear! I love this sport! Even now, the intensity with which I train and the mental preparation are keeping me focused on the continued successes and challenges I have yet to face — but I know “Impossible is Nothing”.

Interests Outside Judo
I love swimming, track and field, wrestling, hiking, boxing, and biking.

Favourite Quote
If you always put limits on everything you do, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits, only plateaus, and you must go beyond them.
