I have been with CRE/NRA since 2001 and have guided the Burnside, Coppermine, and Nahanni Rivers. In the off season I teach at the University of Alberta in Edmonton in Outdoor Environmental Education and Recreation and Leisure. I spend my spare time playing hockey and cross country skiing in the river valley. This winter I also stared working with Alberta Recreation and Parks Association doing some applied research projects. Guiding for me is something I really look forward to, spending some time on the river working with other guides, sharing beautiful places with our guests, getting outside, and working my body and my brain!
Hi folks! I defended my phd in December of 2013 and soon after moved with my partner to Halifax to start a post doctoral fellowship at Dalhousie University. I am working on a ‘Recreation for Mental health’ project as well as doing research and teaching at the university. Life is busy but I joined a local rowing team this summer so I could spend as much time on the water as I could. Needless to say, I am enjoying being by the ocean!
Hi folks! Lots on news on this end: I defended my Phd in December and accepted a Post -Doctoral Fellowship at Dalhousie University in Halifax. I have been very busy moving across the country, starting a new project, and getting used to the warm and wet Eastern winters!
Hi folks! This fall brings new and challenging changes for me: I am working at the University of Alberta and Alberta Recreation and Parks Association, teaching and doing research. It is great to be in the classroom and working in the recreation field! Fall is in the air in Edmonton and I am looking forward to the winter months ahead when I can trade my paddle for cross country skis!
