About Me


Hiking ALL the trails!

Hiking in our gorgeous mountains, cooking and eating, new and happening things going on in Vancouver, and helping travellers get the most out of our amazing region.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read a lot of CanLit (Canadian fiction) so if you ever want book recommendations, let me know.

Not a huge music person ( Weird, I know)

Movies are good when it rains here 6 months a year

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travel. All of it. All the aspects. I don't underestimate how lucky I am to get to have this experience. A lot of people cannot.
Even though we have a long way to go, we've come a long way that young women can go traipsing around the world alone and not have to answer to anyone or have their femininity called into question. Travel makes me a better, more compassionate human being. I'm grateful for this every day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a decent knowledge of the outdoors and love suggesting hikes to people.
