I was born and raised on Vancouver Island with nature as a solid guide and companion to love and understanding of the world around me. I spent my childhood hiking, camping, canoeing, and exploring in nature. As an adult I still embrace and incorporate nature adventures on a regular basis as a way to maintain peace and understanding in my everyday life. I have always loved working and spending time with children, especially in nature, as I believe creative capacity opens up when exploring freely in nature. My background involves summer day camps, various childcare programming, early childhood education, and Kindergarten to grade 12 teaching. My passion and focus of health and wellness education goes hand in hand with nature education. When I was teaching in Tahsis and Kyuquot I especially enjoyed getting kids outdoors and being a part of the wonder and exploration in nature that fosters self esteem, confidence, endurance, creativity, and joy. I am excited about spending my days exploring in nature with your little enquiring minds, and learning as much from them as they will from me.
