Getting into the Sport: Started riding and jumping lessons at the age of five… Her father suggested she try modern pentathlon when she was 16, but there were no training facilities nearby, so she could not pursue it until 2016 after she moved to Calgary for school… Competed in her first modern pentathlon in June 2018… Outside Interests: Studied Public Relations and Philosophy at Mount Royal University… Odds and Ends: Collects postcards and stamps from locations she travels for competition… Uncle Chris Lindberg was a member of Canada’s hockey team at Albertville 1992… Favourite quote: “If we can’t do it, it can’t be done” – Poul Rasmussen
