As a nature-based tourism guide, environmental educator and interpretive naturalist, I see the Elk River as the connector of all life.  Water is a unifying element bringing together community resident’s, industry, agencies and visitors who want to collaborate ensuring healthy water is a legacy worthy of inheritance.  Whether paddling, fishing, swimming or drinking from my well water, the Elk is part of my life-blood.  I want to channel my professional and local knowledge into a water decision-making process that is informed, active, and thoughtful.

Whether paddling the rapids in the Elk River canyon or sampling the benthic invertebrate populations in one of its many tributaries, I feel most at home when I am outside and near the water. I work to combine my passion for the outdoors with my background in scientific inquiry and education to help protect wild spaces. Working with ERA has been extremely gratifying and varied; our work involves everything from reclaiming eroded stream banks to educating youth on riverine ecosystems to developing a flood strategy for the Elk Valley. There is never a dull moment with this organization!
