Behind the Scenes of Teach Outdoors

Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Teacher

I was born and raised in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada by my two amazing parents. My brother, sister and I grew up playing in the ditches and wetlands in the summer and exploring the snowy mountains in the winter.  

I now live in Port Moody, BC. It’s still on the West Coast of Canada, just a bit further up the Burrard Inlet.  My family lives at the top of Heritage Mountain where we enjoy taking our two young toddlers and energetic dog on forest hikes.  

I am very grateful to be living and learning on these lands which lie on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people since time immemorial.
