- What conservation issue is closest to your heart?
- Keeping our wetlands and waterways healthy. Issues surrounding Lake Winnipeg are close to my heart and home.
- What are you hoping to learn from CCC?
- I hope to learn more about issues around conservation and see what others are doing to protect our planet. I want to be inspired and learn to inspire others on what we can do to preserve our environment. I want to be pushed out of my comfort zone and experience everything I can before I head home for my stage 3 project.
- Who/what inspired you to care about conservation?
- Spending summers at the lake or camping and the privilege of having seen much of our beautiful country. I've always appreciated and felt connected to nature.
- How do you plan to make a difference for conservation in the future?
- By continuing to do my part and make choices to live sustainably. And by actively thinking about what more I can do to help preserve our environment while engaging others along the way.

Project focus: I want to focus on shoreline health and encourage cottage/waterfront owners to plant native plants along their shore by holding a plant sale in the month of June with proceeds going to the Lake Winnipeg Foundation. As well, I am planning to apply for a Canadian Service Corps grant to contribute native plants to a no-mow site project in Winnipeg this summer.
