Please list your best and proudest 2012 orienteering achievements.
Sage Stomp 2nd in Sprint and Long
BCOC 3rd (2nd Canadian) in Middle and Long

What is your first orienteering memory?
Getting lost for a while in a sage field near Kamloops on my first race running alone, and then winning the BC champs. The rest of the girls my age came back without finding the second control; apparently the course was a lot harder then it should have been. I didn’t know the difference though.

What is your favorite orienteering story or experience?
The huge crowds in Europe, watching the mass start at 10 Mila in Sweden

Is there a particular map/area where you could never get sick of orienteering?
With the exception of one map in Denmark that was almost all rows of planted trees, there’s nowhere I’ve found so far that I could get sick of orienteering.

If you could fly anywhere in the world to orienteer, where would you go, and why?
Spain or Portugal, as I’ve never been there.

Do you have any other achievements from 2012 that you’d like to share
I graduated from university last year so now I’m deciding where I want that to bring me. Last winter I spent ten days living in an igloo.

If you could get orienteering coaching from anyone in the world (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
There’s so many great coaches out there as I still have a lot to learn.

What races are on your 2013 calendar?
Sprint Camp, Barebones, Sage Stomp, BC Champs

Aside from orienteering, what other sports do you do on a regular basis?
Ski Touring, Climbing, Canoeing, anything sporty and adventurous.

What is your favourite pre-race breakfast/snack?
A granola bar and a fruit bar

Tell us something that we might not know about you…
I’m addicted to chocolate
