Jenni grew up on the BC coast, following her love of nature to a biology degree and field jobs studying all kids of animals from zooplankton to sturgeon, snowshoe hares, and beluga whales. She has also worked as a naturalist and environmental educator. Jenni holds a master’s degree in environment and management and completed the fish, wildlife and recreation program at BCIT.

She spent five years as an environmental consultant in the Fraser Valley before moving to Nelson in 2013 with her family. These days she is enjoying getting outside with her two kids to explore the amazing forests, mountains and waterways that make up this spectacular part of the province, and is looking forward to meeting more nature-loving families with NatureKids!
