Recognizing the need to enhance her physical strength to compete effectively, McKiya embarked on strength training at thirteen, which not only built her physique but also bolstered her mental toughness.

Throughout her high school years at RINK Hockey Academy in Winnipeg, she honed her skills and leadership, eventually leading and captaining Team Manitoba U18. Simultaneously, she tackled the challenges of USport Varsity Hockey, balancing a demanding course load with her athletic commitments.
