What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

I am looking forward to POM and Lipica Open this spring, and hopefully competing at WOC this summer!

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

This past summer when YOA hosted the NAOCs was a definite highlight of the year, but the atmosphere at the bigger Scandinavian relay races cannot be beat!

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

Either Lewes Lake or Long Lake in Whitehorse, although everyone who came to NAOC/COCs got a chance in 2018!

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

I like to start months in advance, with training on similar terrain and studying maps of the area.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

As I am in Whitehorse this winter, I am loving being able to cross-country ski again!
