Jennifer is the top ranked hammer thrower in Canada and she holds junior and senior Canadian records in the discipline.

She completed a double major in American Studies and French at the University of California at Berkeley. Jennifer's athletic career began as a sprinter with Kajaks Track & Field Club. After trying many other events, including throwing, she like throwing so well that she stayed with that. Jennifer's goal is to be the best hammer thrower in North America (US & Canada). She plans to do that by making the finals at the World Championships and be on the medal podium at the Olympics in 2008. When she is not working on her technique, Jennifer coaches other throwers at UC-Berkeley. After she has accomplished her track goals Jennifer would like to continue to coach.

She began competing in discus when she was 12 years old and she started hammer throwing when she was 14.

Personal goals:
Win the Gold Medal, break the Commonwealth Games Record (66.83) and throw over 70m. My sporting goals beyond Melbourne are to win an Olympic Medal and throw over 78 metres.
