Perianne stepped into her first set of cross-country skis at just three years old when she joined a Jackrabbit ski group in her hometown of Almonte, Ont. A love for the outdoors and sport helped propel the devoted youngster to the next level in her sport. At 15, her family joined the Nakkertok Ski Club in Ottawa and her career took off. Perianne quickly became part of the racing team and competed at a high-level throughout high school on both the Nakkertok and Ontario teams.

 Perianne wasa member of Canada’s team for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and has just returned from the World Cup series in Finland.
