ABOUT

Hi, I'm Maddy —
professional sprinter, athlete mental health advocate, and Canadian Olympic athlete.

Maybe start the about me here and finish it below??

I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California alongside my younger sister (and hardest worker I know) Nikky who attends the business school and plays lacrosse at William & Mary. My mum and dad were Canadian, allowing my sister and I to have dual citizenship and call Toronto a second home.

 

My dad who passed away from cancer about 3 years ago, worked in tech and was a professional race car driver and off-road motorcyclist with the most contagious energy, love of life, and gritty nature. His openness to the world and fearlessness of failure is something my family embraces every day.

 

My mum resides in San Francisco, working for Make A Wish and spreading light because of her strength, passion, and grace.​

After graduating from Duke University in 2018 with a degree in Sociology and Political Science, I completed my Masters's of Management Studies at the Duke Fuqua School of Business in May of 2019. 

Currently based out of Durham, North Carolina, I am volunteer coaching for the Duke Track & Field Team while training in hopes of making the 2020 Olympic Team. ​

Closing out my first year (2019) as a professional track athlete, I was excited to race on The European pro circuit twice, sign with an agent and compete for Team Canada at the IAAF World Relays in Japan, the FISU World University Games in Italy, and the IAAF World Championships in Qatar.
