At what age did you start skiing and why? 

Me and my sister Valerie were always skiing in the glades and doing jumps when we were young, and our mom would always bring us in the bumpy slopes. So when our ski hill started a mogul club, we decided to give it a try and fell in love with it !

What inspired you to get into freestyle skiing? 

My mom was definitely my biggest influence. My family and I did a few ski trips when I was younger, and she was the one who made me realize I wanted to do bumps and jumps.

What do you do when you’re not skiing? How do you spend your time off the slopes?

I work in a restaurant (St-Hubert) and I am currently finishing my Cegep, but I like to go camping and going on hikes. I also like kayaking and bike rides.

What’s something fun and unique about you that the average person wouldn’t know?

I have a guinea pig named Polochon and I am addicted to ice cream.

Name a few of your best results that you are proud of.

Winner of the 2018 Canada Cup
