Growing up with the 2010 Olympic legacy in her backyard, Trinity was first introduced to the sport of luge during a Grade 6 field trip. Her mom signed her up to give luge a try at the Whistler Sliding Centre, and she was hooked. She began sliding through the development pathway the next season. After progressing through the system at the provincial level, Trinity spent two years sliding on the Youth World Cup as part of Canada’s NextGen program. Her development has been fast tracked, spending the second half of the 2019 season on the World Cup circuit with Canada’s best before joining the elite squad full-time in 2020. Trinity got off to a strong start in her rookie season, finishing eighth in singles and fourth in the team relay at the season-opener in Igls, Austria. Trinity had another top-15 shortly after at a World Cup stop in Lake Placid.

Trinity was a very active child. She grew up playing soccer and has been skiing since she learned to walk. She also enrolled in gymnastics during elementary school.

Outside of sport she enjoys backcountry hiking and skiing and has been experimenting with photography. She also enjoys playing her dogs, listening to music and being in the mountains.
