MOUNTAINS ARE ME!

I am a homegrown Albertan and never tire of this landscape. I've always wanted to share and work in the outdoor industry. We founded Big Nature with the dream to create incredible opportunities and experiences for our guests to discover the Canadian Rockies. When I'm not in the wilderness guiding, IO actually look forward to going into the office. I love what I do. Whether it is teaching Albertan history, skiing, hiking with guests or booking future trips, I realize I have it right. If only my dog could come on every trip! I am a Mount Royal University graduate with a BA Ecotourism and outdoor leadership.

ADDICTED TO SNOW!

Guiding gives me the opportunity to share my favourite places in the Canadian Rockies with others, while also being able to learn from each and every person on my trip. Every day is different and presents a new challenge, fulfilling my passion for the outdoors and exploring. My love of searching for bottomless powder days is what brought me into guiding. I’m addicted to SNOW!!!! It doesn't matter if I’m on my snowshoes, cross country skis, or my snowmobile, I love winter in the back-country! I love to share my knowledge, stories, and lessons I have learned in the winter with my group! My dream trip that I have been eyeing up for a few years now, is the Wapta Traverse. I graduated from Mount Royal University in Fall 2018 with a Bachelor Of Health and Physical Education in Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership.

OUR GEOLOGIST EXPERT!

As an Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership graduate, I want to share my passion for outdoor education and interpretation with all age groups. I am experienced and strive to facilitate fun, immersive and safe programs. I love exploring new places and sharing my favourites with our guests. I never tire of taking pictures of glaciers and wildflowers. I wouldn't necessarily call myself a geology expert, but I love it! I'm known to laugh at my own jokes because somebody has to.

THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE SHE'D RATHER BE!

I am happiest outside doing anything. Although hiking and biking are high on my fun list, so why not put them together? Hike-a-Bike – The act of taking one’s bike for a walk. It usually confirms I’m on a ridiculously adventurous route if I can’t ride the bike, which probably means, it’s the exact place I want to be. If for some crazy reason I’m not playing in the wilderness, then I read travel memoirs or immerse myself in pages of memories while I document past trips. I am an author and a voracious reader able to spend entire days in a coffee shop, tucked in a corner with my journals, maps, books and an unlimited supply of coffee.
