In Own Words:
Curling is more than just a sport to me. It has literally been a way of life. I met most of my lifelong friends through curling and my schedule year to year revolves around it.[cr][lf][cr][lf]Curling has given me so many wonderful memories and taught me so many life lessons that I couldn't even begin to count them.[cr][lf][cr][lf]Mostly it has provided me with a way to share and interact with people of all ages and nationalities. In that way curling has taught me the importance of diversity and culture in my life.
