Blake was born and raised in Grande Prairie. She grew up playing many sports, but baseball is by far her favourite. Baseball brought her multiple opportunities to travel. She attended a camp in the states where she met many professional baseball athletes that helped shape her into the athlete she is today. Blake also played with the Team Alberta ladies in 2011 and today continues her love for the game playing in Grande Prairie’s Slo-pitch league.
After high school, Blake went on to pursue a degree in public health. Before finishing, she decided it wasn’t quite what she was looking for and went on to pursue a diploma in the practical nursing program. As the eldest of 4 children, she has always had a passion for caring for others. Blake worked as a practical nurse at the Valleyview Health Centre for a little over a year before the opportunity to work at Oliver’s Funeral Home presented itself.
Blake looks forward to continued learning and is attending the Canadian College of Funeral Service to become a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer. She’s excited to have the opportunity to help families in her community in their time of need.
