I am looking forward to building a community of young nature enthusiasts. I grew up in the Shuswap and feel connected to our place and would like to organize activities that help us learn more about the Shuswap. I studied Biology and Environmental Studies at UVic. My love for adventure and the outdoors lead me to a career as an Outdoor educator working for Outward Bound. I worked mostly in Maine, U.S.A. but also in Thailand, N. Vancouver Island, and finally in Hong Kong. In recent years while completing my Education degree I have developed a growing passion for place-based education. I was a leader for the Vancouver Young Naturalists club and believe that NatureKids BC helps families to build stronger connections with nature together.
