About Me

Though I was born on a small farm in the Alberta prairies, I grew up on Vancouver Island and learned to play in the waves from a young age. I have lived in both Calgary and North Vancouver and have traveled extensively throughout Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, Turkey and India, and I have recently returned from a 5-month road trip through the Western USA and Mexico. I am a scuba diver and kiteboarder, but draw my limit at mountain biking. I completed my Bachelor's degree with a major in Greek & Roman Studies and a minor in French language; to this day, I am aware of the importance of understanding history and context in order to communicate effectively. After a career that includes everything from teaching improv drama, digging for dinosaurs, building watershed models and managing compliance requirements, I completed my Master's in Environmental Education and Communication at Royal Roads University in 2020. My research focuses on the links between making and being, how hands-on work can change the way we act in the world. I strongly believe in the power that youth have to create change and I look forward to employing my experience in helping to conserve the oceans!
