Biography
In Own Words:
Curling is more than just a sport to me. It has literally been a way of life. I met most of my lifelong friends through curling and my schedule year to year revolves around it.

Curling has given me so many wonderful memories and taught me so many life lessons that I couldn't even begin to count them.

Mostly it has provided me with a way to share and interact with people of all ages and nationalities. In that way curling has taught me the importance of diversity and culture in my life.
