Emilie has been striving for excellence since she was ten years old when she decided she wanted to compete in the Olympics. From the age of two she started ballet and dance. When she was six she was training in artistic gymnastics and ballet. Then by the age of eleven she made the switch to Rhythmic Gymnastics and was on a plane to Novogorsk, Russia to train with world renowned coaches; Irina Viner and Lusi Dimitrova. Emilie was three time National Champion of Canada and in 1999 Emilie was the Pan American Champion. This title qualified her a spot at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. She finished a respectable 17th at the XXVII Olympiad.
