    Mayflower: How did you first become interested in the sport?
    My older sister started playing so naturally I had to be just like her

    Mayflower:When did you know you wanted to play at an elite level?
    At 13 I reached the final four in the provincial play-downs and since then I’ve been going after the provincial title every year.

    Mayflower: Who has been the most influential in your curling career?
    It has to be my Mom. She didn’t know a thing about curling when we started playing but thanks to her dedication, I’ve been able to travel the world to compete and accomplish my goals.

    Mayflower: What curler inspired you the most growing up?
    There hasn’t been one specific curler that has inspired me, more like a combination. At my first junior nationals Suzanne Birt (PEI) and Brad Gushue (NL) won the titles making me realize that maybe it wasn’t impossible for me to win. Meredith Doyle (NS) had also won just a few years before that. Seeing east coast curlers doing well inspired me!

    Mayflower: Where did we see your team this fall?
    Dave Jones Classic (Mayflower), Lady Monctonain (Moncton), Appleton Cashspiel (Lakeshore), Sobeys Classic (New Glasgow)

    Mayflower: What is your goal for the 2015-2016 curling season?
    Win the Nova Scotia Provincial Scotties and surpass my other records at the national championship.

    Club Information

    Founded in 1905, the Mayflower Curling Club is a landmark in Halifax's rich history. In 1912 the ice shed was used as a morgue for victims of the infamous Titanic sinking, and just five years later the club was destroyed in the devastating Halifax explosion. The Mayflower, which houses six sheets of ice for leagues of all levels, is one of the most well-known clubs in Canada. We embrace all levels of curling from beginners to competitive and we hope to see you on the ice soon.
