My first official guiding gig with Wild Women Expeditions!
I benefitted when another guide had a conflict in her schedule and had to bow out of the Women & Girls weekend. A year and a bit after finishing my training at Algonquin College, after going back and forth with myself over whether I had the personality to guide trips, I got my chance. I supported long-time WWE guide Jenny Martindale who graciously packed the Killarney canoe trip for our three mother-daughter pairs. From a preparations perspective, all I had to do was show up Saturday morning at the Bell Lake Access Point with my own gear.
