Amy’s favourite childhood memories involve learning to fish on beautiful Canadian lakes and she knew from a young age that she wanted water and fish to be a central part of her future career.
Amy completed her BSc in Marine Biology and Oceanography before she moved to the Columbia Valley in 2015 and fell in love with the area. Since then, Amy has been lucky to have BC as a home base while travelling the world to experience various water-related professions. She has spent time in marine conservation, aquaculture, as a research diver, and as a Divemaster.
After completing her Master of Marine Studies in Fisheries Resource Management, Amy began working with non-profits on projects that benefit the ecological health of BC lakes.
Amy is excited to begin as Project Coordinator for BC Lake Stewardship Society while expanding her knowledge on limnology and working with passionate volunteers to protect and restore lakes in British Columbia.
We are grateful to have Amy on board and look forward to working with her. She can be reached at email@example.com as of July 1st, 2023. Marie will be staying on with BCLSS until the end of the summer to assist with the transition and summer programs. Marie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
