Getting into the Sport: Started beach volleyball recreationally in between indoor seasons in university; visited the beach at Ashbridges Bay in Toronto and fell in love with the magnificent view and the number of courts… Outside Interests: Enjoys teaching, because she loves helping others, working as a team, and learning from the youth… Odds and Ends: Her first language is French; she learned English at McGill University, which was a complete immersion for her.
