Event Support Coordinator
Krista is a world-class athlete who achieved the pinnacle of athletic achievement by winning a silver medal in women’s rowing at the 2012 Olympics. Her rowing career began as a student in 2001 when she joined a learn-to-row program at Simon Fraser University. After graduating from SFU, she moved to Ontario to train with the National Team and competed in her first Olympics in 2008. Her resilience and commitment paid off in August 2012, when she and her teammates competed in the women’s eight and won a silver medal for Canada. Krista stands out as a role model for young athletes and has volunteered countless hours to educate, coach, and mentor young athletes. She contributes her time to numerous community events and charitable causes, including Fast and Female, 60 Minute Kids Club, Game Ready, Via Sport, and KidSport. Her achievements in rowing at the national level, World Cup Regattas, World Championships and the Olympic Games rank Krista among the top female rowers in the history of Canadian rowing. After the London Olympics, Krista settled back at her home in Vancouver. Through writing about her transition from high-level athlete to the next chapter, she hopes to help others prepare and manage the transition from sport successfully. Since her time in sport, she has taken a one-year fashion merchandising program at Blanche Macdonald, worked at Lululemon in store and on the website. She now coaches youth, leads indoor cycling classes, and is passionate about helping people feel empowered, confident, motivated, and worthy. She is passionate about her growing family!
