Please list your best and proudest 2012 orienteering achievements.
My two proudest and best moments in 2012 were finishing 65th in the JWOC sprint, keeping up to Runa Fremstad for the second half of the race, the second best moment was being part of the Canadian Relay Team at JWOC which placed 19th with me getting my first fastest split ever at JWOC!

Please list your best and proudest orienteering achievements to date.
The two achievements listed above also count as my proudest orienteering achievements to date!

What is your first orienteering memory?
My first orienteering memory is at the Sass Peepre Camp in Whitehorse, mostly just the camp atmosphere, meeting so many people I still know, and how much fun I had training with them!

Is there a particular map/area where you could never get sick of orienteering?
The Lewes Lake Map, Yukon!

If you could fly anywhere in the world to orienteer, where would you go, and why?
I’d love to go to France where the World Championships were in 2011. I want to try orienteering on that tough of terrain! It would be a huge challenge. Also, I have never been to France, so I have to go sometime!

Do you have any other achievements from 2012 that you’d like to share
I completed my first year of University, and was named Athlete of the Year in Nordic Skiing for Carleton University.

If you could get orienteering coaching from anyone in the world (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
I would love to be coached by Tove Alexandersson. I have watched her race at JWOC and WOC and she is amazing! So fast.

What races are on your 2013 calendar?
I’m aiming for JWOC 2013 in the Czech Republic, hopefully some undecided European races, COCs, and all the Yukon races!

Aside from orienteering, what other sports do you do on a regular basis?
I cross-country ski mostly, with some soccer and basketball thrown in.

What is your favourite pre-race breakfast/snack?
I either eat oatmeal with lots of fruit and nuts in it, or a toasted bagel with butter and yoghurt and banana.

Tell us something that we might not know about you….
I also play the violin!
