I have been playing basketball since I was 7 years old.

I have been lucky to have experienced Hoopla, which is the annual provincial championship tournament in Saskatchewan.  I also played three years with the Jr. Huskies (the Huskies are the University of Saskatchewan Basketball team).   Every year I would also play in the Saskatoon Minor Basketball Association league and took part in Basketball Saskatchewan camps and training programs.

When I was in Grade 11, in an effort to give back, I started to referee and coach. These new experiences and perspective gave me confidence and a sense of achievement.

My Grade 12 year, shortly before playoffs, I tore my ACL.   Needless to say, I was devastated.  Surgery was followed by a nine-month recovery.   I trained hard and am happy to say I recently took part in a competitive three on three University of Saskatchewan basketball tournament; winning 1st place.

I love to play the game; I love the endurance and skill component as well as the speed and strategy.  What gives me a sense of satisfaction is coaching.   This is my third year coaching a Basketball Saskatchewan team.    This year I am co-coaching a 13 and under girls team with my good friend Kelsey.  Today was our first game in a tournament in Saskatoon.   We were successful in that we won the game, but more importantly I am proud of the hard work, determination and team spirit displayed.
