Cailey has always found happiness and passion in the world of athletics.

Cailey also submerged herself in the world of track and field and volleyball throughout high school. She ran 300m hurdles, the 4x100m and 4x400m relays and has competed at the OFSAA championships. Since Cailey suffers from many injuries, she has found herself shifting her focus to athletic rehabilitation and coaching. She is extremely proud of her position as an assistant coach for the junior boys volleyball team for the past two years at Sandwich Secondary School. She furthered her involvement by serving a role as the team physiotherapist and mentor for the track and field team. From coaching, Cailey finds she learned an extensive amount about herself from the athletes she has taught. Cailey is returning this year to help coach the track and field team in hopes of continuing to inspire, motivate and ignite confidence in young athletes to assist them in achieving their goals.

Cailey believes that her experience with Miss Universe Canada will not only allow her to make new relationships and grow as a person, but will open up doors to allow her to aid with more charities, specifically with allowing underprivileged children to partake in sports and recreation. Cailey will use her platform to show the importance of self-love and confidence in hopes of showing young women that their flaws are their most valuable and beautiful features.
