I did Fast and Female when I was 14, so I got flown out to Canmore because I won a contest. In the first Fast and Female events ever, they were flying two girls from every province to Canmore for this event. That was my first time out West and I got to meet Chandra Crawford, who was a celebrity to me at that point. That was super motivating and I was on a high from that for a really long time. My inspiration from Fast and Female combined with the feeling that I was enjoying skiing the most out of all my sports prompted me to join the local Fondeurs Laurentides nordic team at 15. Two years later, I fully committed to skiing, leaving Quebec to train with Coach Les Parsons in Edmonton, Alberta.
