member of the Canadian Olympic Team and was inducted into the Hall of Fame at both
her alma mater and Softball Canada. She is meek in nature and attributes all her
accolades to the hard work instilled by her parents; listening to her mentor, Coach Rick
Bertagnolli; and, being able to be a member of some dynamic teams.

debilitating, as an ability that continues to drive her forward with vigour. Her passion is
helping young people actualize their athletic goals through mentoring, coaching on and
off the field, and providing practical tools to improve skill level, whether in life or sports.
