BIO

I am an internationally known Canadian freediver who takes adventure to the next level. I specialize in under-ice freediving, pushing boundaries in some of the harshest environments. My skill and passion in this field have been recognized in multiple television and magazine features worldwide.

 

Professionally, I work as a rope access supervisor, and in between that and freediving I am putting my heart into rebuilding a 1966 wooden fishing troller. 

 

In 2018, I became the 16th woman in North America to become a rope access supervisor. This is the main source of income that enables me to renovate my boat. In addition to rope access, I’ve been a commercial diver (hardhat), structural welder, millwright apprentice and soon to be 100-ton captain. 

 

I want the world to understand that women can do big, dangerous, exciting, wonderful, and difficult things. I like to think that my achievements add to my presence on social media and have a positive impact on other women’s lives. Empowering women to pursue careers and hobbies in male dominated fields is something I constantly strive for. 

 

I like to fill my time, and I always pursue big goals. 

 

Last January, I became the proud new owner of a wooden commercial fishing troller. I’ve been doing a full rebuild and will get her back fishing again. Many people have been intrigued by this massive project and tagged along to follow my updates on social media and website blog.

Please tag along in the adventure and if you wish to help with the restoration, you can donate on the GoFundMe here:
