I’ve been part of the Black Feather team since 2015, and since the birth of my son Will, expanded into a manager role, and now am owner and director of Black Feather with my husband and long-time Black Feather guide Ken! It has been an exciting and rewarding transition and I look forward to continuing the legacy that Wendy spent so many years nurturing and bringing to life.
River travel has been a staple of my adult life, and with Black Feather I have guided the majority of our canoeing offerings and love spending time with groups on the water. I particularly love the rivers of the Peel watershed in the Yukon territory, and the magic of sea kayaking on Georgian Bay, with warm water and endless sunsets. My journey into canoe tripping started on the lakes of Algonquin Park as a teenager and soon grew to include whitewater, with time spent rafting and kayaking internationally gaining more skills and experiencing more rivers. I love being outside, teaching and playing outdoors, and am a Paddle Canada and Canoe Kayak Canada instructor trainer for kayak and canoe, and a whitewater rescue instructor. When I’m not working with Black Feather, I might be ski patrolling at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort or working as an avalanche professional near my home in Golden, B.C., or playing with Will reading stories, chasing him at the park or teaching him about the beauty of the outdoors. Wherever I am, I’m pulled back to the mountains, lakes and rivers in this magnificent country we call home. I look forward to sharing these with you!
