Ocean Wise Alum – 2021 Ocean Bridge Cohort

A bit about me:

I am so grateful to live in the mountains. I love spending time outside hiking, mountain biking, and skiing. I also love art and graphic design and am very inspired by the nature around me.

An ocean-related issue close to my heart is reducing waste and and using less toxic products. I believe that what we do as individuals does have an impact on large companies and governing bodies. While I am by no means perfect, I am always trying to learn ways to reduce my personal impact. I run a small natural cleaner company with my mom and our main goals are to reduce waste and to use ingredients that are safe for people and the environment. I also respect that it is a privilege to be able to focus on my personal environmental impact.

I grew up beside a creek and have always loved spending time in and around water, I especially love to swim. I visited the ocean for the first time when I was 16 when we went on a very random family trip to Mudge Island on the West Coast and fell in love it with. Taking road trips to the West Coast is now something that I love to do. It is such an amazing feeling spending time around the ocean, as it is so different to other bodies of water. I think that the tide makes it extra exciting and the first time I explored tidal pools was such a cool experience. But I stick to swimming in rivers and lakes, although it is amazing and beautiful, swimming in the ocean scares me. One day I would love to move to the West Coast!

What gets me up in the morning?

I love waking up and watering the seeds I am starting. It is my first year starting seeds and it is so fun seeing how much they have grown and changed each day!

Tell us something random about yourself:

My favourite marine animal would probably be an otter. They are just way too cute. But I have been pretty excited every time I have gotten to see a marine animal of any type!
