What is your most memorable athletic achievement?
My most memorable athletic achievement was making the jump to AAA in Minor Bantam. I was so nervous that I almost did not try out! I have made so many friends and amazing memories along the way that I will never forget with the Lakers.

Outside of hockey, what are you most passionate about?
I focus a lot on my educational future and being a positive influence in my community. I enjoy volunteering with local hockey camps, track and field events, and other activities in my hometown. Other activities I also enjoy are golf, swimming, and traveling with my family.

How would you describe yourself as a player?
I would describe myself as a quiet leader and someone that my teammates can rely on every night. I always strive to be better and work with my coaches every week to learn new techniques. My size and athletic ability allow me to have a big presence in the net and make it difficult for opponents to score against me.

What are your academic aspirations and accomplishments?
In the future, I aspire to go to medical school, and I am focused on maintaining strong marks to make that possible. I am an honour roll student, and my current GPA is 92% in all my courses. My school also selected me to represent them for my leadership and community involvement nationwide. In the future, I hope to obtain a scholarship and continue to pursue athletics at the highest levels. 

What is something about you that most people would not know?
My on-ice and off-ice personality are completely different. I am a competitive and intense person on the ice, but I am a very calm and collected person off the ice. I strive to be someone who everyone feels comfortable being around and a role model for others in my community.
