My goals for the Canada Winter Games are for our team to place top 3 in Flight A. I would also like to do my personal best in figures. I want to relax, stay positive and enjoy this amazing experience! If my duet is chosed to compete I would like to place top 3 in Flight A.
My personal role model
My personal role model is Claire Carver Diaz. She was an amazing synchronized swimmer and was always determined to achieve all her goals. She is a positive role model, and is someone I have been privileged to work with during my career. She was my duet and solo coach in 2006, and was someone who always encouraged you and believed in you. She is an amazing person and has accomplished many things in her life, such as attending the Olympics twice and ending her career as the World Champion Soloist.
