Born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, Kyra grew up roaming the forest year-round. During many years at summer camp, she was introduced to canoe tripping. On these trips, she fell in love with life on the river and backcountry cooking. Kyra went on to complete a bachelor’s degree in Outdoor Adventure Leadership, and gained experience leading extended canoe trips in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Labrador. Kyra has recently put her second degree (this time in nursing) on hold to pursue her passion for the outdoors even longer. In her free time, you can likely find her in the kitchen making a big mess, or exploring the local trails on foot, skis, or bicycle!
