Raft and canoe guiding for me began on the rivers in Ontario. Recently I found myself in the right place at the right time in the Northwest Territories which led to guiding with CRE. The slogans are true: Larger than Life!, Within Reach, Beyond Belief! what can I say?
Sharing an expedition with a group of great people for 12 days is truly a priviledge and I look forward to many more!
I am still working hard at school. This fall I completed a practicum with Human-Nature Counselling while trying to finish writing my thesis. I am also working at the youth shelter and doing some outreach work here in Victoria. It’s paddling season here on the island, so in my free time I like to get out and explore as many rivers as I can!
After an amazing summer guiding four trips on the Nahanni River, I am back in Victoria trying to start my thesis. I was fortunate enough to take a week off school for a personal canoe trip with fellow guides on the Paull and Churchill Rivers. I am currently waiting to sign a practicum contract which will bring me to Kuujjuaq, Quebec for a month this fall where I will work with youth and families in their school and community. Other than that I will be dreaming of getting back on the Northern rivers again next summer!
After my first summer on the Mountain River, I moved to Victoria to start my Master of Child and Youth Care. I’m loving it, but I miss being outside all day everyday. I hope to return to the north next summer!
