  • Short Bio
    I am a professional tourism consultant and graphic designer with 20 years experience in the tourism industry. After completing the Ecotourism & Adventure Tourism Management course in Ontario, I was privileged to be awarded an internship and events management position with The International Ecotourism Society in Washington D.C., under the direction of Martha Honey. Since then, I have traveled around the world and worked with several ecotourism and sustainable development projects in Ontario, Mexico and the Caribbean. I have a passion for sustainable community development and local capacity building and bring my extensive experience to every contract!
