In February 2017 she suffered a tear to the patellar tendon in her knee. She returned to competition to qualify for the 2017 Pan American Championships in Montreal, QC, Canada. She had to withdraw from the championships, however, when she fell off her bicycle on the way to training and suffered concussion. She then suffered knee pain in late 2017 and took three months off before returning to competition in January 2018. (SportsDeskOnline, 10 May 2021; lapress.ca, 13 Jun 2020)

She missed five months of competition between August 2013 and January 2014 due to a foot injury. (sportcafe.ca, 31 Jan 2014)

She began fencing at age 14. (olympic.ca, 11 Jun 2015)

She had been attending a day camp in Blainville, QC, Canada, and her mother asked her if she preferred to enrol for fencing or acting lessons. "At that time, I didn't even know what fencing was, but my mother explained it to me and I told her to choose it for me. For once I was better than my brother at something. I was beating him and he didn't like it." (nordinfo.com, 01 Apr 2021)

General Interest

General
CONFIDENCE LOSS
She started working with sports psychologist Heidi Malo after admitting that missing out on qualification for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and an injury-interrupted 2017 led to a loss of confidence. She had also experienced episodes of anxiety and chest contractions during training and in competitions. "I cried so much when I didn't make it to Rio. I think I cried for two weeks. Then, we were not even a year from the start of [2020] Olympic qualification and I had no confidence and didn't like fencing anymore. It was a disaster. I don't know what I had, but it felt as if my fencing mask was taking my breath away. But I've worn my mask a million times, so I knew that wasn't the problem. Heidi kind of saved my career and I'm trying to find ways to control it and to manage it well." (lapress.ca, 13 Jun 2020)

STUDY BREAK
She took a one-year break from her political science degree at Concordia University in Montreal during the 2019/20 academic year to concentrate on her fencing commitments. (Facebook profile, 05 Mar 2019; LinkedIn profile, 01 Jan 2017; lapress.ca, 13 Jun 2020)

OCCUPATION
She has combined her studies and fencing career with working in a clothing shop on a part-time basis. (lapress.ca, 13 Jun 2020)
