Coaching History: Coaching was a way to give back to a sport that has provided me with, and continues to provide me with so many great opportunities, memories, experiences and successes. In my last year of high school, my coach, and now mentor, introduced the Canada Games Apprenticeship Program and it was a no brainer to get involved.

Are you currently coaching? Currently, I am assisting my mentor and the rest of the Canada Games wrestling coaches with both the men and women teams, in addition to helping my coach with high school practices.

Share a fun fact about yourself: At the 2016 Eastern Canadian Championship for Powerlifting, I broke 5 national records in my division.

What do you do on your free time? I loved spending time in the outdoors, so I spend my time hiking and riding my bike, skiing, playing the guitar and I also like to draw.
