I have been involved in the sport for the past 13 years. I grew up swimming in the summer pool system, and joined Dollard Synchro at the age of 8 years old. I went through the Development program for three years and then followed into the Elite program. I participated in three U.S. Open competitions representing Quebec as a Junior & Senior athlete. As an athlete, I always loved the creative aspect of the sport, and I plan to incorporate that into my coaching objectives. I am currently on the McGill Varsity team and studying in the Education program. I hope to become an elementary school teacher in the future. This will be my second year coaching at Dollard Synchro and I look forward to working as the Head Coach of the Novice U12 Team this year.
