Favorite thing about working for O.A.R.S.: My favourite thing about being a guide is showing people my office - the great outdoors. I love being able to take people to places where they are WOWed often! I love seeing people out of their comfort zones and fully enjoying nature, the beauty, the serenity and the power! It's the best job in the world! I love waking up every morning as a guide because adventure and good times await. It makes my soul happy. :)
Greatest Memory: Oooooh, there are so many....one recent great guiding memory was last summer when we rafted through an insane section of whitewater with both banks burning and exploding (at a safe enough distance) in a fire a forest fire in BC - talk about adrenaline rush! That was a first!
Other Hobbies: I run the outdoor education program at a small private school currently. I'm about to branch out and create my own outdoor adventure and education school program. YES!
