From starting off as a lifeguard and lifesaving instructor, I discovered a passion for instructing and leading groups. After many other jobs requiring leadership and instruction, river guide, ski patrol, Fire Fighting etc. I landed In the Emergency Medical field. Now over ten years working in Canmore as an Advanced Care Paramedic I am continuing to build on my education with a Diploma in Mountain Medicine and Advanced Wilderness Life Support. Also building on the Wilderness Leadership Skills I run a company that offers training in river skills certifying guides and other professionals in instruction rescue and medical consultation.
