My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games are to play to the very best of my ability, be an impact player and help unite Team Alberta. By helping all the players become more confident I feel that this will be the best U-18 female team of all time.
My personal role model
Hayley Wickenheiser is my personal role model becuase of her work ethic, strong personal development and her true love for the game. As Hayley goes, Canada goes.
Other information that could be of interest to the media
I live on a farm and ranch in south central Alberta. I enjoy all types of sports and love to represent Alberta in International competitions. I enjoy hunting, fishing and quading in the high country west of our farm and ranch. On our farm and ranch the Red Deer River and the James River merge creating a natural preserve for all types of animals. I truly love nature and the great outdoors. I recently committed to Cornell University and look forward to a great education along with being able to represent Canada when I am playing hockey there next fall.
