"Saskatchewan is my home and I'm proud to tell people that I'm a Saskie, even though I now live in Alberta. I feel tremendous pride to have represented Saskatchewan Blue Cross since 1999. To me, this partnership represents a home town, community-driven platform to share my journey as an Olympian, a Champion, a Canadian, and a mom.
"I am the proud mom of two wonderfully active children. Being active physically and participating in my community are extremely important to me and my family, and I appreciate the commitment of Saskatchewan Blue Cross to those same values.
"It has always been important to me to have the best health care benefits available, for me and for my family. Saskatchewan Blue Cross coverage is my assurance that, if something does happen, we're covered. I travel a lot and the last thing I want to think about is how I'm going to pay for an unexpected bill when I'm away from home. Whether it's an accident or an illness, Blue Cross means my family is prepared."

“Having experienced the cardiac rehab process, I'm thankful for the SK Blue Cross Love2Live program at the U of R. The supportive cocoon-like environment helped me make sense of my situation while recovering, and now helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
