I was born and raised in Quebec City, Canada, and I have been bowling since I was 2 years old. At 16, I made Youth Team Canada for the first time and became hooked to the competition. I moved to Wichita in 2011 to attend Wichita State University, and I graduated in 2015 with a Business Administration degree. I joined the PBA in 2016 and continue to represent Canada internationally.
In my free time, I love to play, and watch, hockey and tennis. My favorite team is the Montreal Canadiens, and my favorite tennis player is Roger Federer. I also have deep interests for languages and the culinary arts.
