After studying Outdoor Recreation at Lakehead and then spending some time away, Amanda is happy to be back Thunder Bay! In the last decade she has worked with people of all ages, particularly enjoying her almost 3 years of adventures with youth and young adults in Algonquin Park. Her favourite place to connect is in the outdoors--whether it's a field, a forest, a frosty lake, or cooking over a fire. In her off time she enjoys trying new recipes, making art, and going for hikes with her dog Rey. She is enthusiastic about being outside, growing food, and hearing people's stories.
