What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

I’m most looking forward to running Venla this year with a strong women’s team. We’ve been working hard together over the last few years but haven’t had the breakthrough performance that we’re capable of. This year, I hope we can all be injury-free and in top shape for a stellar run.

What is your favourite orienteering event that you have done so far?

My favourite has to be my very first competition which was the Canadian Championships in the Yukon on 2004. I will always have really fond memories from there.

Which map in Canada do you think all orienteers have to try at least once?

Lewes Lake in Whitehorse; it had me running around in circles!

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

I read through all the information provided about the race and write down the important points. I also write down what I would like to focus on during the race in my technical, physical and mental performance.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

Drawing, knitting and reading.
