What race are you looking forward to for 2018?

I am really excited for NAOC and COC because they are on my home turf.

When did you start orienteering?

I started orienteering in grade 8 after my friends took me to a local meet.

What is your best orienteering memory?

I have been to a few major events but one that stands out from this year in Iceland. Half our Sprint map was an old Lava field and it was really neat navigating through it.

What is your favourite type of orienteering event and why?

I love relay races. The atmosphere and cheering is amazing well racing. The chaos in woods of everyone going every direction.

What’s the best orienteering advice that you’ve received?

Whenever I have a map with lots of detail I was told to look through the detail to the contours and that’s how I simplify.

Who is your orienteering idol or inspiration?

I would say that Nesta is my inspiration. I would love to be orienteering and competing for as long as she has.

What are some of your 2018 goals outside of orienteering?

I got a new puppy this past Fall so I would say having a trained adventure buddy is my goal.
