GETTING YOU OUT THERE
Basic Canoeing Instructor
My passion to teach people canoeing, stems from my father taking me out in the canoe at an early age. When I am out on the water either in a canoe or kayak. It feels like home. Each year my family and I venture out on a canoe trip. Passing on the knowledge of my father and others to my girls.
I am an ORCKA Basic Canoeing instructor and I have been teaching the Basic Canoeing program for 15 years. I hold a Wilderness First Aid certification of which I have been refreshing through continuing education and renewal courses for the past 15 years.
Canoe Tripping Instructor
I have spent my entire career teaching people of all ages and walks of life. I am a retired teacher with the Simcoe County as of June 2009. I have over forty years of canoe tripping experience with family, high school-age students and adults.
As a long time volunteer and instructor of ORCKA, I hold certifications as a Basic Canoeing instructor and as a Canoe Tripping instructor since 1995.
I have been working Wolf Den Expeditions as a canoe tripping guide and canoeing instructor since 2010.
