Carrie’s involvement in the sport of Synchronized Swimming began at the age of 16 as a recreational swimmer and later on as a provincial and national stream athlete. She continued to pursue her passion for the sport during her undergraduate studies at McGill University and competed at the Canadian University Synchronized Swimming League (CUSSL). In 2014, Carrie jumpstarted the Dandelion Program at the Vancouver Pacific Wave Synchronized Swim Club, which is an adaptive synchronized swimming program geared towards athletes with disabilities. The program has had tremendous success in facilitating inclusion and provides an opportunity for athletes of all abilities to compete and flourish in the artistic and athletic sport of synchronized swimming. Carrie hopes to use her knowledge as a Therapeutic Recreation Professional to highlight the important role of sports in promoting an independent leisure lifestyle.
