Kristine has dedicated her life to helping others connect with the natural world since she began her career in environmental conservation. As the Executive Director for a wildlife education charity in Vancouver called Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society, her team works with tens of thousands of underprivileged children every year, teaching them about animals and their habitat through hands-on experiential programs both indoors and out in the field. She spends every spare moment paddling her Waterwalker along the shores of Vancouver’s Pacific Ocean, and the surrounding mountain’s high alpine lakes thanks to Thurso Surf’s travel backpack, or exploring the peaks and wilds of British Columbia as leader of the local hiking community called Hikes Near Vancouver.
