Grace's Story

For as long as she can remember, Grace has called herself an athlete. First it was figure skating, and from then on, she discovered the sport of skeleton at the age of 18.

Her time in sport led her to pursue a Degree in Health & Physical Education at Mount Royal University in her hometown of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It was here she applied her lifelong experience as an athlete to her classroom studies. 

 

Upon graduation from university, Grace shifted her focus to sport. Now entering her 10th season, and her second on Canada’s National Team, she has competed in over 30 international races, including one World Junior Championship and she has won two North America’s Cup races. It hasn’t been all roses though - Grace can speak to perseverance and how she used her underdog mentality to work her way to the National Team. 

 

She is aiming to represent Canada at the Olympic Games, and has a passion for giving back to her community. She is a KidSport Calgary Ambassador, has been a part of Fast & Female events & works for the Non-Profit Classroom Champions. 

 

Outside of sport & work, Grace loves a good cup of coffee, spending time with her dog Ivy & exploring the city she calls home, Calgary.
