My name is Whitney and I grew up in the vast rockies of Canmore, Alberta. I am lucky enough to have been brought up in a community that fostered both my passion for the outdoors and the well being that comes with it. I am a mountain kid through and through, and enjoy all aspects of climbing up mountains, and sliding down them. In my free time you’ll find me on my skis, my bike, or up on a horse whenever I have access to one.Over the last 5 years I have been living and working in different mountain playgrounds throughout Alberta and British Columbia. I've spent my winter seasons working in backcountry lodge settings and my summers fighting wildfire with the BC Wildfire Service. My work has pushed my boundaries physically and through these experiences I've come to realize my passion for physical fitness. I have come to understand through working in these demanding physical work environments (where injury and strain are common) the value and virtue in muscle recovery and ongoing personal care.
My fascination with the body and its ability to enable us to do the things we love has brought me here to Nelson, to study Registered Massage Therapy alongside continuing to pursue my career in firefighting.
I am pretty fresh to the area having just moved here in September, and am looking forward to all the adventures this town has to offer!Don't quit your daydream.
