“It is the journey of striving to achieve the success that matters so much more than success itself. You have to enjoy the journey,” Fiona shares. And she clearly enjoys the journey. While at Ridley, she was not only awarded Female Athlete of the Year
, but the Dorothy Burgoyne Award
winner for quiet leadership and integrity. That underlying temperament, combined with talent and persistence, helped Fiona develop into a top tier athlete as part of a six-year career spent representing Canada. She made the 2000 Olympic Rowing team in Sydney and then Athens in 2004.
