Nelly was an enthusiastic and faithful MI member from 2001 (Montreal FISA Masters) to 2010 (St. Catharines FISA Masters) when she finally retired from competition. She had been rowing since age 12. She remembers her participation with MI as one of the best experiences in her life & one of the highlights in her rowing career.
