Kelsey Catherine Schmitz

E2C Program Manager

Kelsey Catherine has spent the last 13 years working in education, as well as continuing her own education, completing a PhD in Education with a focus on Society, Culture and literacies. As a teacher, professor, researcher, community coordinator in Indigenous education and assistant director in teacher education in the Eastern Arctic, her professional and personal life is a lifelong journey of learning and sharing. She is passionate about youth advocacy, storytelling, and supporting experiential education programs. She is even one of those special teachers who loves teaching middle school. 

She took the plunge and joined the staff of Students on Ice Foundation in the spring of 2019, heading the new northern community outreach program called Expedition to Community. 

Kelsey Catherine is also a Gryffindor, and can be found in the company of her Duck Toller, Tennyson.
