I have come to Whistler from Ottawa-Montreal area about 9 years ago.  I was a skydiving sports photographer at that time.  My customer service experience is extensive from being in the Insurance Industry, owning my own retail shop in Ottawa to being entrepreneurial with a photography business in the skydiving industry both in Canada and the US.

My husband and I as well as one of our 4 children have embraced the west coast lifestyle.  We all enjoy what the Mountains have to offer.  Skiing, back country adventures and snowshoeing in the winter are but a few of the activities that we enjoy in the Sea to Sky corridor.  In the summer, hiking all around our beautiful forests and mountain ranges is one of our favorite activities.  We also enjoy water sports like paddle boarding and swimming in the crystal clean lakes.  This year-round playground is a photographer’s dream.

Being part of the Escape Route team has been a joy.  Working with people from all over the world, learning about how the proper gear makes adventures even more enjoyable and being part of an ever growing and vibrant retail establishment has been enlightening .  I have also enjoyed watching our clients light up and are thankful when we suggest the correct gear for their own adventures no matter where they are going or what they are doing.

I hope that I can continue to inspire everyone to get out and enjoy new adventures, while being properly equipped and clothed.

Water time!
