“I am grateful to the trees, rivers, lakes, and critters that make up the outdoor spaces where I work. All of these pieces bring a power to the outdoors, making it a dynamic learning space to empower resiliency, incite curiosity, and build relationships between humans and the natural world. I am also grateful to the trees, creeks, raccoons, and crows that make up the urban environment of downtown Toronto where I live. They remind me that “wild” spaces exist all around us. I am passionate about breaking down barriers to the outdoors and connecting people in meaningful ways to the wild spaces that surround them.
In working with the Training Academy, I enjoy pulling back the curtain and talking about the theory and care behind the work we do. This is a way for me to combine my love of theory as well as practice and share in building up the toolboxes of other outdoor leaders.”
