Outdoor Experience Guide

Kim loves: Dog sledding.

You might meet Kim at:  Dog Sledding, Canopy Tours, Rock Climbing, High Ropes Course, Canoeing, Hiking with her dogs, or the Forest Festival.

Kim joined the Outdoor Education team in September 2012, and is passionate about teaching others about nature in an experiential manner. She is dedicated to educating people about living a sustainable lifestyle and about the impacts individual choices have on the ecosystems around them.

Kim fell in love with the outdoors at a very young age while canoeing, family camping, fishing, and skiing. She loves to travel, having worked with orphaned children with disabilities in Guatemala, surfed in El Salvador, enjoyed the culture in Cuba, travelled through the northern United States on a dog sled, and road tripped across Canada. She also had the ultimate Canadian canoe experience paddling through Algonquin Park. When you speak with Kim, you realize she is always looking for an adventure on the back of a dog sled or in the bush on snowshoes.

Kim graduated from Lakehead University with a Bachelor with Honours in Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism, and with a specialization in leadership. She has done further studies at Georgian College and Laurentian University.

Through the Outdoor Ecological and Experiential Education program, Kim is certified to teach intermediate and senior levels. She expanded on her teaching opportunities by becoming qualified to teach students with disabilities and students at the junior and primary levels.
