My name is Jessica and I train with the Newmarket Huskies. I’ve run a variety of distances ranging from marathons to the 1500m. But this year I am really focusing on the 3000m for outdoor track and cross-country. I am a teacher and have also had the opportunity to coach cross-country and track and field teams. Making my first OFSAA in 2003, was one of the most memorable moments for me as an athlete and I love helping others reach their goals.
