Bio

I grew up in Ste-Therese Quebec, a little town in the Laurentians about 30 minutes north of Montreal. As a kid, I was always really active, I’ve been involved in sports my whole life, from hockey, ski, golf, mountain biking, soccer and Triathlon. However, triathlon has been an ever growing passion since I was 8 years old. One day during the summer of 2001, my dad asked me if I wanted to try a triathlon. Being very curious about any new sports, I immediately said yes and a few days later we were in the car driving to Trois-Riviere, Quebec for a local race. As soon as the race started, I was hooked and my passion for triathlon never stopped growing since then.
I raced on the quebec cups circuit until I was 15 years old and was old enough to race the national junior series. Back then, I was coached by Kyla Rollinson and she taught me pretty much all I know about elite racing and wouldn’t be here without her.
I raced as a junior for 4 years, traveling around Canada to race the national junior series and traveling around the continent for PanAmerican races. When I started racing as a U23, I moved to Guelph Ontario to train with the RTC Guelph coached my Craig Taylor.I now train with the Wollongong Wizards, based in Australia during the Canadian winter and in Spain during the summer.

As well as doing triathlon, I am currently in university studying nutrition.
