About Me

I have been skipping since the age of 8 and competing for the last 6 years. The sport has brought me across Canada. This year I was the Top Canadian Female skipper, earning a spot on Team Canada to compete at the 2021 Virtual International Jump rope competition. I am NCCP coach certified, and have taught Recreational Jump Rope.  I recently passed the certification to become a jump rope judge, scoring trick difficulty for Competitions.

I attend Bishop Carroll High School, work at Sportchek, and train every day for jump rope.  I enjoy my cashier job at Sportchek, as an opportunity to promote the amazing Jumpstart for Kids program, that allows kids to partake in sports.
