Bio: Registered Nurse, started running 4 years ago. Was National Female Champion at That Dam Hill, London, Ontario in 2017 (24 hr, 161 km). Will attempt to break the record (702 km) for the 6-day ultra at Icarus, Florida in Nov of this year. Planning to cross Canada from east to West (7831 km) by foot for the Guinness World Records in the summer of 2019 and raise money for clean air – planting trees across Canada. Had a motor vehicle accident in 1997 and was ejected from the car, ended up with a splenectomy, could have been paralyzed. I believe God saved my legs for a reason: running.
