Born in Calgary, Wilson dove with Dive Calgary during her junior years, and competed for Alberta at the 2013 Canada Games. At age 13, she was the youngest member of Team Alberta. She then moved to Toronto where she trained at the Toronto Diving Academy and represented Ontario at the 2017 Canada Games. In 2017 she won a silver on three-metre synchro with another Alberta native and teammate, Elaena Dick.
Since 2018, she has been training and studying in the U.S. First at Louisiana State University and now she studies elementary education at Texas A&M, living in College Station. She’s specific in her career goals as she would like to become a first grade teacher.
Diving wasn’t always Wilson’s top activity. For 11 years, Highland Scottish dancing was her life. Wilson started dancing when she was five years old and loved it for most of her life. She decided to put her primary focus on diving at age 13, when she realized she could execute the tough dives her opponents were landing. Her mother was a competitive gymnast and is now an international judge in the sport.
Within the collegiate ranks, Wilson is a five-time NCAA Championships qualifier, a member of the All SEC Second Team in 2019 and 2020, and the SEC co-Freshman diver of the year in 2019.
Her goal is to continue her progressing in the sport with an eye on qualifying for the 2024 Paris Games.
