Background

National Ski Team Background:

I made the National Cross-Country Ski Team 5 years ago when I was a junior. During my last year at this level I decided to join the Centre National d’Entraînement Pierre Harvey (CNEPH). I managed to meet the criteria for the Senior National Team with my performances at the Junior World Championships in Goms in 2018. I am now in my 2nd season with the senior team and I plan to continue to represent my country as best I can in the coming seasons.

Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing:

I started skiing at a very young age. My parents were cross-country skiers and outdoor enthusiasts who brought me to Gatineau Park. I learned to love competition with the Skinouk Nordic Ski Team, where I moved up the ranks and raced with my club’s elite team. I am very grateful that this passion for skiing has been passed on to me.

Personal:

I’ve always been easy to get along with, I love meeting new people, learning more and interacting with them. I am passionate about the outdoors and sports, I particularly like cycling (road, mountain, cyclocross). I have a lot of ambition for the future, but I’m still unsure what I want to do later or what field of study I would like to get into.
