On top of this she began referring and also obtained her coaching certification through Rugby Ontario. Last summer she worked for Rugby Ontario as a Community Rugby intern which allowed her to share the beautiful sport of rugby in elementary and middle schools in Mississauga. Further, she has been playing on the Brock Varsity women’s rugby team for the past 3 seasons.
