My love for skating started when I was very young. Hockey was the name of the game and I played as a left winger till I was 13 years old. During my last season, my older brother, Wes, decided to try speed skating with the Rocky Mountain House Speed Skating Club. I decided that I would follow my brother’s lead and give speed skating a try. An instantaneous love for the sport then followed. Short Track was my first exposure to competitions. Traveling around southern Alberta for Ability and Age Class meets were the highlights of the season. Training was done under the watchful eye of Coach Phyllis Loewen. During the next few seasons, I participated in the occasional Long Track competition at the Olympic Oval in Calgary, where I developed a preference for long track speed skating. In 1997, my family moved to Calgary and I began training, in earnest, at the Oval in the Oval Program under the guidance of Kurt Innis. During the last five years at the oval, I have worked and trained under three different coaches, Mark Greewald, Arno Hoogveldt, and Moria D Anfrea.

I am currently studying Chemistry at the University of Calgary and training full time in anticipation of the next Olympics in Turin, Italy.
