Growing up in Ontario Ally got her start exploring the Great Lakes and rivers during summer canoe trips with her family, learning the ins and outs of portaging, safety, white water and over night expeditions.  After making the move to the West Coast in 2013, she wasted no time establishing a new home within the paddling community and joined the Ecomarine family.

Ally’s energy and passion for the ocean is contagious. She believes in the power of nature to bring people together and loves any opportunity to experience it with others. As a teacher and guide she is grateful to witness the processes of self-discovery and personal development in others that comes with immersing yourself in the outdoor world both on and off the water.

On any given day you can find her kayaking around Vancouver, teaching local yoga and SUP classes, or exploring the beautiful coastlines of B.C. on her paddleboard.

A major highlight from 2015 includes paddling with a pod of transient Orcas in Sechelt Inlet (video here).
