I am a homegrown Albertan and never tire of this landscape. I've always wanted to share and work in the outdoor industry. When I'm not in the wilderness guiding, I actually look forward to going into the office. I love what I do. Whether it is teaching history, skiing, hiking with guests or booking future trips, I realize I have it right. If only my dog could come on every trip! Did I mention I love skiing!? I am a Mount Royal University graduate with a BA Ecotourism and outdoor leadership.
Growing up and recreating in the Pacific NorthWest and the Canadian Rockies built the foundations for my love of the wilderness. These remote and mysterious areas are where I love to learn, explore, and push myself. From backpacking in the summer, to exploring un-touched zones on my snowmobile in the winter, I embrace the backcountry regardless of the season. Throughout my Ecotourism degree, my passions led me down the road of Snow science and snowpack understanding. As an Operations Level 1 Avalanche Technician, I love to share my knowledge of the snowpack. Teaching our participants about snow's purpose, its power, and complexities is one of my favourite parts of guiding! On top of this, guiding gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge and favourite places in the Canadian Rockies, while also being able to learn from each and every person in my group. No matter what trip we are on, we will always create lifelong memories, friendships and relationships with the outdoors.
I consider myself to be more of a summer gal, preferring to spend my days hiking, scrambling, and climbing in the sun. Some of my fondest memories are of camping with family and my many years working at summer camp. However, being a born and raised Calgarian I have come to terms with the fact that winter takes up most of the year and have found ways to love it as much as summer (almost). Snowshoeing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and winter hiking are some favourites. However, I am just as happy to enjoy the beauty of winter from a warmer vantage point, such as next to a fire in a cozy blanket.
I love nature, the outdoors and people, and I love finding ways to bring everyone together! I'm a creative writer, illustrator and professional musician. When I'm not designing, writing songs or playing music around Calgary, I'm out biking and swimming in the summers and skiing in the winters!
