Time spent in expansive remoteness tracing water flow or seeing new proglacial lakes being formed taught me the importance and patience of field research. Time working with seasoned Arctic researchers taught me the value of mentorship. In university, many summers were spent in canvas tents 3-4 months at a time amongst the muskox and cottongrass in the Canadian High Arctic and Subarctic collecting water storage data. After completing a M.Sc. degree studying discontinuous permafrost & connectivity hydrology at the University of Saskatchewan, I moved to the Canadian Rockies and worked for many years as field & technical support for a mountain snow and glacier hydrology research group. Currently, I work in snowpack and water resources monitoring for water management, drought and flood forecasting.
I’m thrilled to join the Inspiring Girls Expeditions family as a Girls on Ice Canada Instructor.
