Exploring the Canadian Rockies to give you the BEST Inside Information

Freelance Writing

I am available for freelance writing contracts on any related subject connected to family outdoor adventures in the Canadian Rockies.  You'll find that I am knowledgeable on most activities, trails, and locations within Kananaskis and the National Parks of Alberta and British Columbia's Rocky Mountains. I am also an Alberta Parks Ambassador and extremely familiar with many of the provincial parks across Southern Alberta.

Below is a sample of some of the websites and publications I've written for over the last couple of years: 
My freelance writing takes me to awesome places like this!

Tourism and Marketing

If you work in the local tourism market, I would love to chat with you about partnering with you to help promote your business, operation, or family friendly accommodations.
Below are some of the recent businesses I have promoted on my blog and through my freelance writing:

Gear Reviews and Sponsorship

If you are an outdoor-focused company interested in having me do a gear review of your product, please contact me and we can discuss details. 

I am also interested in sponsorship and ambassador programs.  I am one of Keen Canada's Ambassadors since 2013 which is very exciting and I've been trying stuff with Columbia Sportswear since 2013 as well. 

New this year, I am an Ambassador for Alberta Parks and I am also a Role Model for Active for Life.

  2. Hi there,

    I just wanted to thank you so much for this site. We are a family of 4 - kids aged 3 and 14. Your site has helped us over the last 3 years to plan summer holidays and they all have been fantastic!!! We just got back from Elkwood and LOVED it! Next we are going to Cypress Hills and Writing on Stone. Thanx again!

  3. hello! we're looking at last minute tent camping options within 3 hrs of calgary that would be best for our 4month old, 3 year old and 4 year old. we'll have bikes with us but would benefit from a playground & sandy beach within walking distance if possible. if you have any suggestions we would greatly appreciate it!
    thanks so much, i love your blog!

  4. Hello! I really love your blog and enjoy trying new outdoor adventures with my family. Thanks for the great suggestions!
