Welcome to my healthy living blog! You may know me as a 2-Time World Champion Figure Skater, Olympic Silver Medalist, and 6-time Canadian National Champion in pairs skating with my skating partner Eric Radford.

My passion for Figure Skating has been part of my life since I was 3 years old, but more recently I discovered a new passion: Healthy Living!
