Wild Voices Program Manager
Rebecca is delighted to be working with CBEEN as the Wild Voices Program Manager. She enjoys finding creative avenues for developing the capacity of programs, and identifying ways to connect with and support the individuals involved. Rebecca continually seeks to expand her own understanding of the earth, and is passionate about including others in the process. Sometimes, she soaks in the slowness of sitting and observing the wild spaces around her. Other times, she delights in play and adventure!
Rebecca moved to Kimberley from Newfoundland, where she worked as the program manager for a youth program, and as an outdoor instructor. Previously, she spent time in BC completing her Masters in Visual Arts and mountain guiding. She is delighted to return to her home province to work with CBEEN, and is excited for how she can contribute to the Wild Voices for Kids program through her diverse experiences and passions.
