Becca has had lifelong passions for sport, fitness, and outdoor adventure. Having grown up in the suburbs of Toronto and spending summers at camp on Beausoleil Island in Georgian Bay, she was exposed to a vast array of athletic endeavours. It was during this time that her desire to share her experiences with others was also sparked. Attending university and playing varsity level sport in New Brunswick, she knew that more adventures lie ahead. After graduation, Becca moved out west for one ski season … this one season turned into a new life. It is here in the East Kootenay’s, almost 20 years later, she continues to live, work, and play!
Becca believes that we grow when we take calculated risks, have the courage to challenge our current conventions, and remain open to new opportunities.
