Partners

 I have been so fortunate to collaborate with some really great partners. Representing companies that I proudly stand behind to help spread the word about great products and services is such an honour. Through content creation shared via my blog, Instagram, Facebook page and community hiking group, I help businesses engage with the Vancouver hiking community while helping hikers learn about great stuff to improve their experiences.

Partnerships happen in a number of ways including ambassadorships, product testing/development, sponsored posts/stories, guest-speaking/workshops, . See all my recent partnerships below, and you can see the associated blog posts at hikesnearvancouver.ca/tag/partners/

CURRENT AMBASSADORSHIPS

LOWA boots Canada

 I’m so honoured to be part of the LOWA Canada team since early 2018, working alongside such incredible adventurers to help spread the word about one of the world’s top hiking boot producers: LOWA. Check out all of the LOWA Canada ambassadors and athletes at https://www.lowa.ca/en/about-us/athletes-ambassadors/

Conservation of the environment and all wildlife is at the core of my very being. It is a big part of what defines me and drives me. So it is with such a great honour that I get to represent Vaude, a company that specializes in sustainable outdoor gear. They have been working with the strict environmental bluesign® standard since 2001, which controls the entire textile manufacturing chain. They are also the first outdoor company to receive EMAS certification, a premium management instrument developed by the European Commission for companies to evaluate, report, and improve their environmental performance. See their sustainability report here.

Vancouver has captured my heart because it lays in that sweet spot where the mountains meet the ocean. It’s the perfect place to hike, and also to paddle! If I’m not out hiking, you’ll probably find me on a board, and whenever possible, you’ll find me doing both! Some of my favourite places to hike are up to alpine lakes so I can explore them by SUP. With my awesome Thurso Surf inflatable SUP complete with backpack, the extra weight ain’t no thang but a chicken wang! Check out my board at thursosurf.com
