Maïra started triathlon when she was six when her parents registered her into a swimming club to improve her technique. She fell in love with swimming and competed for 10 years, reaching a national level. One summer, when she was nine, Maïra participated in a road bike race because her brother was in that sport. In 2016, she participated in the provincial games, Jeux du Québec, in triathlon. It is here she realized the potential she had in the sport. It was only in 2020 that she decided to stop swimming and put aside bike races to do triathlon.

Maïra looks up to Maghalie Rochette – an inspiring Canadian professional cyclocross rider who shares her journey as an athlete through her podcast.

Maïra is currently studying at the University of Denver, majoring in mechanical engineering.

In 2020, she decided to do the Shaved Head Challenge of Leucan with her friend – a fundraising campaign that helps families of children diagnosed with cancer.

Her friend’s user her as a living GPS – even though she admittedly confuses her left and right. If she is not competing in triathlon, you can find her on the mountains, camping and trekking. She would love to cook banana bread all day.
