In school she was involved in collecting supplies for Siloam Mission and helped in the Festival Théâtre Jeunesse program run by her grade 12 peers.

In grade 10 she joined her high school rugby team, becoming a member of the Rugby community in Manitoba. She then joined the Wasps women's rugby club and this year joined the provincial U18 Rugby Sevens Team, and aspires to compete with them in the Canada Games this Summer. She runs on her own time and this helped her to participate at the provincial level for both biathlon and marksmanship.
