Most memorable skydive: Jumping with my mom was the celebration of several milestones for our family. It was pure fun and excitement. Getting to share the sky and my passion with my mom is something I’ll never forget.

Why do you love skydiving: I love the peace and freedom that comes from being surrounded only by air. In addition, this sport allows athletes to push themselves as far as they want, whether that be casual fun jumping every few months, or full time career skydivers. This brings together an incredible mix of people who would otherwise never cross paths in life.  The community is truly remarkable.

What is the best part about organizing: Watching younger jumpers grow and develop in the sport is immensely rewarding. I enjoy helping people who desire to improve, and providing structured jumps where everyone has a good time.

As a member of the Canadian National 8-way skydiving team, we have trained at many DZs over the years. By far, we have never been treated as well at any other drop zone in the world. This is our new go to DZ. Cannot say enough good things about this operation!!!
