I Made an Academic Case Competition Team! (JDC Sprott 2018)

As I get closer to graduating, I am working really hard to keep pushing myself outside of my comfort zone academically. The purpose of this is to network, create awesome memories and to continue developing my academic skills and competencies. This year, I am competing on the JDC, Sprott School of Business case competitions team. I […]


Hi all! This week was the Money, Mindset and Marketing Conference, presented by business coach and strategist Lisa Larter. I had the privilege of attending as one of Catherine Priestman’s guests, who is the President of CP Business Solutions, an image strategy and branding company. If you need help with your strategic marketing plan, or discovering […]

We Day Keynote Speaker 2017

Last Month, I had the great honour of being the Keynote Speaker at Emily Carr Middle School’s WE day. I think that it is absolutely amazing that local schools are hosting WE Day’s and it was clear that this school took it very seriously.  For those of you who aren’t aware, “ WE is a […]

Sports Help Build Confidence in Life

This weekend is the National Championship and selection for the next World Championship in Ireland. Although it is not a date booked in my calendar this year, it is for many of my past teammates, and new athletes that are trying to qualify for their first time. Just thinking about it brings back such amazing […]

A Great Start to 2017!!

Welcome to 2017! I am back at school after a nice relaxing winter break!  I had a particularly exciting start to my year, when I was invited to give a talk and team building session for a 12 year old girls Ringuette team last weekend.  I had a lot of fun planning this 2 hour […]

Inspiring Day At Ronald McDonald House

Today I had a very inspiring visit and tour of the Ottawa Ronald McDonald House. I have been looking to donate a batch of my Believe hoodies that came in the wrong color to a charity or organization.  I didn’t want to incorporate a new colour since  CP Business Solutions and I had just worked really hard on my branding […]


Day Time Talk – Rogers TV

What an INCREDIBLE 12 hours!!!!! My TKD instructor Mr. LeGrow,  invited me to join him along with another student (Pierce Rogers) from the dojang to go on the Day Time Talk Ottawa TV show on Rogers Cable.  The whole interview was only about 8 minutes long and it went so fast.  It was frustrating when they asked me questions because I […]


Awesome Weekend!

Friday night is Sparring night for me 🙂  Everything was going really well until the sole of my foot made contact with a very sharp elbow of the person I was about to kick.  Let’s just say it didn’t feel good but that’s all part of the deal.  You have to be ready for anything […]

What is Your True Love on Valentines Day?

I love all my training sessions but sometimes you a have a workout that is  just a bit better than others.  Today was one of those awesome training sessions. Right after school I ate one of my ‘little’ meals in the car on the way to track practice.  Bill put me through a great weight […]

Steph Boivin got me the sweetest gift! She contacted over 30 people from around the world that mean so much to me. She made a photo album with letters from all 30 people. I cried with every letter. Thank you to everyone who wrote in the album and thank you to Steph for making me the best birthday gift ever.

Always Learning and Loving It!

Since I’ve changed my eating habits I can’t believe how much better I feel.  Eating smaller meals every 3 hours really helps keep my energy up through the long training hours.  It’s so much work with all the food preparation and packing a little cooler every day before I leave the house but at least […]
