Hi, I’m Ash! I am always curious, always learning and love to laugh. I work as a outdoor educator, teacher, and expedition guide which allows me to learn from the natural world and meet amazing people from all over. After years of teaching and directing an outdoor experiential school for inner-city youth from Toronto I switched my career to become an Expedition Guide working with huskies in the snowy forests of Northern Ontario, penguins and leopard seals in Antarctica, and the whales and sea stars of the wild BC coast. I am currently studying climate change education and working on raising awareness through citizen science projects. I am honoured to be part of SOI family this year and look forward to meeting you!
