Interview on Hike Like a Woman

How does a mom, business owner, and outdoor adventurer balance it all? Have I ever had a family adventure that went horribly wrong? What would I tell my 12-year-old self?

Rebecca from Hike Like a Woman sure had a wide range of questions for me in her podcast, on an episode she called “Real Life in Banff.” Sounds about right, seeing as I get down to the bare bones (sometimes skeletons) of things, and give you the honest truth on my life as a parent, wife, entrepreneur. Plus, I was entirely unscripted and somewhat unprepared, so my answers are about as authentic as they come!

climArt change: Film . Art . Words .

Thursday, February 23, the North Columbia Environmental Society presents climArt change, a multi-media show that celebrates the possibilities in the face of climate change.

As the author of the Alpine Club of Canada’s “State of the Mountains Report,” I’ll be giving a short keynote address to kick off the evening.  This talk will introduce the theme of the evening, in addition to highlighting the importance of local knowledge – what we learn from people who have the experience and observations gained from intimate experiences in the wild places.

Other special guests include Greg Hill (he has one inspiring project to share with you), Trapper Snowboards (recreational locovores), and much more…

If you’re in the area, come on out for some art, short films, inspiring words, funky music, drinks, door prizes and a great crowd!
