Personal: 

  • I moved to the Yukon from Edmonton when I was 2 years old for my dad's job. In my early 20s, I lived in Lethbridge, Alberta and New Zealand. I never ended up staying there as the Yukon has always drawn me back home!  

  • I started working at Boreal in July 2020, when there were only 5 full time staff. It's crazy how much we have grown since then!

  • When not at work, you can find me at the rink playing hockey, skiing, hiking, biking, or at home spending time with my fur family.
