I spent many years working in the restaurant industry, accounting & sales. In August of 2007 I left Canada and traveled around South America. I spent the next 7 years traveling & checking off my bucket list. I operated a kite resort in Brazil, opened a kite school in Nicaragua & the Yucatan, Mexico. Currently i'm in Barbados. I've learned a lot about myself & the world from my travels & experiences. My passion for sports & constant quest for excitement has lead me down an interesting path where I find myself as a Pro athlete at the age of 36. Currently i'm sponsored by Adidas eyewear, Shinn boards, Bajan Cherry Swimwear & Swish Suits. I placed 1st in Mexico for women's freestyle 2013 and 3rd in the world speed championships 2012.
