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 gear to improve their experiences. This happens in a number of ways including ambassadorships, product testing/development, and giveaways.





LOWA boots Canada


I’m so honoured to be part of the LOWA Canada team, 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/

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!
