I have been involved with WRWEO since I returned to Nova Scotia from Ontario in 2005. Over the past few years I have been WRWEO’s Chair/Co-Chair, and treasurer. WRWEO obtains a large proportion of its funding from Halifax as well as from the Province of Nova Scotia.

I am excited about our sixth year with the Bluff Trail Stewardship Program and I hope it continues to address the Harmful Human Impacts that we have seen on the trail. In particular the summer student program has been a great help to the program – through Canada’s federal government program we have been able to hire four summer students who spend time on the trail – engaging trail users in leave no trace principles, remediating human harms, and stewarding the trail under the direction of our stewardship coordinator Mike Lancaster.

I love being outdoors and on the trail. When I first returned to Nova Scotia I was interested in paddling but soon discovered that that involved more portaging than paddling.

I am trained as a lawyer and work full-time with the federal government.
