Best Suplove Moment?
Suplove has introduced me to some amazing people in the SUP community! My best SUPLOVE moment is the continued camaraderie and friendships that have happened over the commonality of the sport! 

One fun/quirky fact about you?
I am the ladies 1st Place SUP CUP winner in the Mahogany Homeowners Association Race!! I got a trophy and a cheque for winning! My name is forever engraved on the plaque in the beach house! I joke that I have officially gone PRO!

What activities do you enjoy to do on your board? 
Right now I'm into racing! I have a couple races this summer that my SUPLOVE board and I will be heading out to! But I enjoy yoga and touring as well! Have recently done a lot of ocean paddling and tired some surfing – which is my new fav, but of course living in landlocked Alberta, it will have to wait for my tropical vacations! Most of my paddling consists of flat water, but I recently got my River SUP Certification so will be trying that out a little more this season!

Where are your favourite places to SUP?
Kananaskis country has some amazing lakes that are too cold to swim in but amazing to paddle on! Barrier Lake and Lake Louise are some of my favorites! Love the Okanagan in British Columbia and the paddling the many lakes of Fernie, BC. We recently bought a condo in Fernie where we ski in the winter and paddle and mountain bike in the summer. There is a little lake called Surveyors Lake just outside of town that is full of turtles! The water is crystal clear to the bottom and you can see all the fish and turtles swimming around! Definitely one of my favorite places!

If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do? What makes you smile? What are your passions in life?
I hate to sound cliché but I would still be a chiropractor! I truly am apart of the greatest profession in the world! I work exclusively with infants, children and pregnant mom's and the rewards of my work are endless. Such an amazing profession that fulfills my desire of helping people. I've been in practice for 11 years and have seen some true chiropractic miracles that only endorse what I already feel about my profession. I'm thankful everyday for my training, knowledge and skill set and what it means for my own children and their upbringing.

What makes me smile?
Making others smile! I love a good laugh and I love making other people laugh! I'm always up for a good time and a laugh wherever I can get it! I'm social and love meeting new people and I'm drawn to those with the best sense of humor! I'm known for my funny sayings and storytelling!!

My passions...fitness and health, my family, living in the moment and living with an attitude of gratitude. As my boys get older travel is definitely taking a precedent. We are currently planning a trip to Japan and Thailand over Christmas this year!
