Abbey is passionate about accessing healthy mental and physical connections to body movement. Her love for physical activity truly began when she was introduced to activities like hiking and sea kayaking. As a guide and outdoor enthusiast, she’s learned that physical activity and movement contribute greatly to positive mental health. Her interest to share the joy of exercise with others motivated her to become a certified personal trainer through the British Columbia Recreation & Parks Association.

Beyond daily screening, is not up to our staff to do temperature checks, testing or contact tracing. This is the role of the health authority.
