"After three amazing years with BC Alpine on the women's team, I have decided to end my career as a competitive ski racer. I suffered a minor injury in the beginning of March which made me reflect on my career and think about my future. Through meetings with Johnny and my parents I've decided that I have more options in school than skiing. I will be enrolling in the University of Waterloo in the fall.

With this said, I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in my career. Every coach has taught me something whether for skiing or lifestyle. Thank you to sponsors Atomic, Fischer, and Skiis and Biikes for helping me with my endless need for equipment and tools. Haywood and all of the other BC Alpine sponsors have helped tremendously with the never ending financial payments. As well, Whistler Mountain Ski Club, I would never be the skier I am today without the amazing support from the coaching staff. All of the BC Alpine staff, thank you for supporting me for the past three years! Thank you to all of my friends I have made along the way, you guys have made the -30 days with windchill fun if that's possible! Of course, thank you to my family who have always supported me through the ups and even the downs I have gone through. And if I missed anyone, thank you!"
