Narrative:

I have lived in Springwater for my entire life and have always had a passion for athletics. I began playing softball and figure skating when I was 4 years old. My skating success allowed me to begin my competitive stream foe sports at an early age while continuing to play for the Georgian Bay Minor Softball League until I was 14.  I moved on to playing with the Barrie Storm Fastball team and did so, leading up to my involvement in college ball with Durham College. In between these years, I also competed for 6 years as a National Ice Dance Figure Skater and travelled throughout the country. Currently I am a varsity athlete with Durham College, where I get to study at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology for nursing, and play the game I love.
