In 2007, our high school senior girlâ€™s soccer team won City Championships in Division 2.Â My position was on the starting line-up playing as a left-outside defender. Our record for the entire season was 7-1 with 27 goals for, and 10 goals against. As this season only has 5 senior returning players, using our leadership skills was important for leading the new team into another season. Our 2008 season ended with a Silver medal. We made it all the way into the City Championship and lost 1-0 due to a late goal. It was mostly a rebuilding season for all the junior players, however it was a huge accomplishment in order to reach the city finals! This season I was chosen to play in a High School All-star soccer team, in which all the high schools in North Calgary play against the South schools.

With my club team, I have been to provincials twice, and won various medals with the team. Even though our outdoor season for 2008 was not as impressive, I was chosen over the rest of my teammates to participate in the Tier 2 All-star/Select team. I had the opportunity to play with the best players from all the teams in Tier 2. The All-star team played against Mount Royal College, University of Calgary Dinosaurs, and other Division 1 U-18 teams from British Columbia, and other cities in Alberta. Being able to play against high level teams not only helped me improve individually as a player, but also allowed myself to gain confidence in that I have what it takes to play side-by-side with most of these other experienced players. I am now currently playing in the Calgary Womens Soccer Association (CWSA) under Juventus Chieftians in Division 1.
I have been invited to numerous ID camps and other soccer events to organizations including the University of Alberta, where I got a chance to be exposed to the level and lifestyle of a university soccer player, and meet a handful of great coaches and encouraging team mates.
Â My most recent volunteer work has been part of the Mike Metcalfe 30-hour soccer marathon in which a 30 hour soccer game took place in order to raise money for cancer! I was there for 13 hours throughout the night and morning hours meeting new people, and helping for a great cause! Also I've put my time toward volunteering with the Schizopherenia Society of Alberta to help plan and prepare their Christmas dinner/party for this past holiday season!
