As an Outdoor Education scholar and avid traveler, I have had the great privilege to travel across Canada.

Throughout Canada, I have followed the trails of earlier travelers, canoed our rivers and lakes from the Maritimes to the Yukon, and trekked through the wilds with students and lovers of the outdoors alike. In more recent years, I’ve been able to travel to Iceland and Norway to learn about their cultural connection with nature.  My partnerships with travel companies, as well as universities like the University of Edinburgh and Laurentian University has allowed me to share my love of the outdoors and trail travel with students of all ages and backgrounds.

See my journey…
