Acquainted with boccia through a recreational therapist in 2007, Caroline began competing internationally in 2010 at the Boccia World Championships. Toronto 2015 will be Caroline’s second appearance at the Parapan American Games after Guadalajara in 2011, but this time, Caroline will settle for nothing less than a podium finish.

Career Highlights

Caroline’s career highlight is the bronze medal match against fellow Canadian, and current world ranked number one player, Marco Dispaltro at the 2013 BISFed Americas Team/Pair Championships. It was a tight match, with both Canadians going back and forth throughout the four ends, but with Caroline ultimately taking the medal.

Personal

Caroline brings passion and determination to all facets of life. Off the court, she enjoys spending time with loved ones and is a big movie fan, comedies being her genre of choice. In sport, Caroline is also an avid swimmer.
