Kayaking Guide and Camp Leader
I’ve been living on Maurelle Island and Quadra Island since 1995. Having found this magical wonderland I quickly transplanted myself from Ontario and immersed myself in the natural world, learning all I could of the healing properties of medicinal plants, gardening and harvesting. What better way to support my habit of the outdoors but to kayak for a living.
I completed my guide courses in 2001 and worked as a sea kayak guide for many companies through the years. Brody and I were married in 2004 and started to piece together our dream of building the ultimate kayaker’s destination. In 2007 Go With The Flow Adventures was born. It has been a dream come true: To live the life I wish to live and to invite the world to share in this very special place.
I have been lucky enough to grow up surrounded by the outdoors in the small rural town of Cherryville, B.C. At the age of 24 I made the decision to move to Vancouver to try and make a career for myself in the Outdoors. I graduated Capilano University outdoor rec. program and loved the experience kayaking. I became a certified guide with the Sea Kayaking Guide’s Alliance of B.C.
The Ocean environment is an exciting world, everyday there is something new to see and experience. Seeing the enjoyment people get from kayaking makes it all worth while. I’m excited to meet new people, create memories and gain more knowledge and experience.
I grew up in Vancouver and graduated from the Outdoor Recreation program at Capilano University. I find great joy in being able to guide people in the outdoors and connect with the natural environment. I also wish to share the passion I have for kayaking with others. I love working in an ocean environment and am continuously humbled by the interactions with wildlife and the beauty that surrounds me.
Through teaching and guiding others my knowledge and skills grow, but it is the new friends and great memories that I look forward to the most in 2012. I feel very excited and fortunate to be working with Go With The Flow Adventures this season.
Together, we invite you to experience the natural wonders of the Discovery Islands by Kayak.
