Start in Racquetball: I was always involved in sports but racquetball was one sport that I could beat my dad at, so I liked it and kept at it.
Reason for playing: The special people that are involved in the sport and support the players. I love the game and the power of hitting that perfect serve or shot, it pumps me.
Training habits: I train twice a day – either hitting or in the gym and yoga. Hydration, eating healthy, and getting great sleep.
Best Racquetball moment or memory: Making the come back as National Champion in 2008 after I was told that there was a new guard for the National Champion. Taking the gold medal at the Pan Am Championship in 2012
Non – Racquetball Talents: I am a listener.
When you are not playing Racquetball you are probably: Training, going to yoga, working on my house or spending time with my special friend.
Advise for athletes who want to play at your level: Train, train, train and then train some more. Listen to your coaches – they have what it takes to get you to where you want to go.
Who has been important in your developed as a racquetball athlete? My parents have always supported me in playing. Old team members – the bad boys of Ontario have been there and showed me the ropes. My current coach, Sue Swaine had helped me take the game up that extra notch that I needed.
