Laura and Jackie met 15 years ago as camp counselors, quickly became close friends, and before long they began dating. Recently, after an elaborate proposal that Jackie sprung on Laura while they were travelling in Vietnam, the couple decided to take the final leap and get married.

The pair are dedicated humanitarians who enjoy travelling the world to embrace and discover breathtaking scenes in the landscapes around them, and find peace in helping others. They volunteer for many different causes and consider themselves planners and doers, always completing a task close to their hearts. However, no matter how often they explore the world, not being able to predict every scenario and being in unknown situations tends to bring a level of stress between the two of them.

"We may struggle as a team with problem solving challenges," said Laura. "But Jackie will do well with anything thrilling – the bigger the better!" "Laura will be good at memory challenges," adds Jackie.

Winning 'The Amazing Race Canada' would affirm their belief that they can accomplish anything together as women. They have many helpful mentors in their lives and would like to now be role models themselves.

Motto: "No hesitation."

Team they most associate with from Season 1: Vanessa and Celina.
