When and How I Started Playing
First time I saw a foosball table was when I moved from rural Saskatchewan to Edmonton AB. I helped my boyfriend at the time buy a tornado table. Having put all that money into it I decided I better learn to play. I was at his house whenever I could to practice, even if he was studying for school I was playing foosball. Outside of that we would play at the U of A, at a little arcade called the Cue, which is where we met Christian Dunn. We all became fast friends and he invited my boyfriend to play on his team in a league that was being run out of Rosarios. I was never invited out but continued to play and practice. After university we all grew apart but I still played whenever I could. I would always suggest meeting my friends at a pub that I knew had a foosball table but they caught on pretty fast. My biggest competition was playing my friends 2 on 1 and even then I usually ended up winning.
How that led to Tournament Play
I hadn’t seen Christian in about a year and was itching to play some real foosball when finally we ran into each other. First thing I asked if there was still a league, yes indeed they were running one out of Gateway lanes at the time. I went that weekend and it felt so great I continued going 2-3 times a week. That year I went to 2 tournaments outside of Edmonton, one at Calgary and the other Washington state. Since then Foosball has given me the opportunity to play in France and all over the United States. I spent 2 summers, 2015 and 2016, touring around the states with my now husband playing local and Major tournaments. It has been a wonderful experience and I am excited to represent Canada this summer in Spain!
Outside of Foosball
Along with being a new mom, I run my own business teaching guitar and piano lessons in Sherwood Park, AB and have been recording and performing with my band the Moonshine Mamas.
