Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It makes me feel good about my body. It improves my rugby game. I love the high I get when I am running or working out. Endorphins! It's the best feeling when I make it through my coach Liam Hutchinson's fitness tests.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

I have to be healthy to excel in rugby. My favorite quote is: "Every second that you're not training, someone else is." One of my motivators is when boys my age say girls are weak and aren't as strong or fit.

  • Played for U17 Alberta team for 3 years - Captain for two of those years
  • Played in the Champagne Classic Tournament with U18 Canadian team
  • Playing for the U18 Alberta team this year - Captain
  • Playing for the U20 Alberta team this year and participating in the NWL
  • Playing in the Nations Cup this year with the Canadian U20 Team
  • League MVP for my high school league this year

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

At first I wanted to make the Canadian rugby team. I am now participating in the Nation's Cup this summer for U20 Canada! However, now rugby is in the Olympics so I want to play in 2016.

Some people that have always had my back and been pushing to reach my goals are a big reason why I will do anything to reach them. I want to prove to them that their help and dedication at helping me excel paid off.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I want to play in the 2016 Olympics, so I want to improve my fitness to get there. I would also like to start bodybuilding and competing in fitness modeling.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Always set your goals high, but never unrealistic. Your biggest competitor should be yourself.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Some of my favorite bodybuilders are Ronnie Coleman and Jamie Eason. I am truly inspired by so many fitness competitors because it takes a lot of drive and dedication to do what they do. Along with fitness models, my favorite rugby player is Shane Williams! He's ridiculous!
