How can I help?

If you are currently running youth programs and trying to make it happen outdoors and are freaking out a little bit. I am willing to be available on a free 30 minute call to trouble shoot.

Shoot me a text with your name and a good time to call you: 250-927-7923

With 20 years of outdoor guiding under my belt running programs for up to groups of 35, with an MA in Environmental Education & Communication where I studied the Wild Craft Play Program to understand why it was so engaging, I have many skills to share and am available to help.  My most valuable skills are within this list, yet ask me anything, and if I don’t have the skills, I am sure I can source what you need!

Program Promotion

Digital Storytelling

Online Marketing
  • Sometimes online marketing can get overwhelming.  There are so many things you need to learn about this, and honestly the only way to move forward is by eating that Elephant 1 bite at a time.
  • Online Marketing is good for any online sharing, small scale promoting to global initiatives.
  • There are free options, yet I recommend making the online platform that you use work for you and investing a bit of money to ensure it is reaching who you want it to reach.
