How long have you been participating in your sport? 9 years

Why did you start participating in this sport? I was born in Canada where curling is very popular, so when I decided to take up a sport in the winter, curling was the one!

Who has been the most influential person in your sporting career and why?
Steve Metzger, the man who first taught me how to curl. He believed in me right from the start, coaching me and letting me play on his team even when I could barely

Have you ever played another sport at an elite level,apart from the one you practice now?
I was chosen to compete in the Junior Canadian Rangers Air Rifle National Competition in 2009 and 2010. I came 6th in 2009 and 2nd in 2010 out of all of Canada.
 

My most memorable achievement was playing in the Winter Youth Olympics. 

My funniest memory from curling was partaking in the curling episode of 'A League of their Own' when it was filmed at my local rink in Kent. Trying to curl with the celebrities was definitely a laugh!
