Year: 3
Hometown: Beaverlodge, AB
Major: Biology

I am from Beaverlodge and I am a third year Bachelor of Science student with a Biology major and a minor in Environmental Science.  I hope to pursue graduate studies in Paleontology after I graduate. This is so I can one day work in a museum research laboratory to study the fossils of dinosaurs and other extinct organisms. This will also be my third year on the Vikings Running team. My goal for this year is to finally break the 36min mark on the 8km race and earn my way to running nationals.

When I am not on the trails, you will usually find me hanging out with friends, playing video games and eating pizza. You might also find me playing a friendly bowling game or reading a good book such as Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings'. My favorite movie is John Wayne’s “The Alamo” and my favorite food are tacos. One of my favorite quotes is “Run often. Run long. But never outrun your joy of running.”
