Matt, Trip Facilitator

Matt in 3 words: Charismatic Fun Intentional.

Hailing originally from Medicine Hat, I came to Calgary to study Kinesiology and to train on the High Performance whitewater slalom kayaking team. In my third year of kinesiology, I was diagnosed with 2 separate brain tumors. After this kick in the pants, it was clear to me that I needed more direction in my life. So I hopped on the nursing bandwagon. I now work as registered nurse, and hope to pass on any iota of empathy I can towards my patients. The great outdoors holds a big place in my heart, and I’m very much looking forward to adventuring with everyone!
