Getting into the Sport: Started wrestling at age 11 but after two short seasons at the school level joined a club team to compete more frequently… Outside Interests: Studying Sport Management at Brock University…Odds and Ends: Collects shot glasses from different locations where she competes… Favourite motto: Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want… Has always looked up to Tonya Verbeek… Once had a pair of wrestling boots she never lost a match while wearing and was terrified to compete without them when they got too old to wear; gave up her superstition when she continued to have success without them…
