Julia has been a lover of the outdoors since she went on her first canoe trip as a kid. Growing up mainly in Ontario, her background includes instructing youth in leadership and outdoor skills. She spent her summers working with youth on canoe, kayaking and hiking trips based out of Ontario while completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in Nova Scotia. During her studies, Julia discovered a love for the ocean and a respect for the knowledge and skill required to safely navigate a sea state.
After several years working as an RN, Julia has decided to integrate her love for the outdoors back into her professional life. She has now completed certifications with Paddle Canada in order to guide and instruct sea kayaking in one of her favourite areas of Nova Scotia, the LaHave Islands. During the “off season”, Julia continues to explore the outdoors while working throughout Canada as an emergency RN.
Julia is excited to share knowledge with you on the water!
