In 2013, she joined the National Junior Cross-Country Ski Team. She logged the best North-American result in 2013 by finishing fifteenth at the World Championships held in the Czech Republic. She won Ski Trax’ best North-American skier award and was offered a spot on the Canadian National Senior Team.
