Madeleine was born and raised in Nelson, BC and is now based more or less in Revelstoke, She has designed her lifestyle to accommodate her passion for adventure and extended time in the mountains with great people, and is extremely thankful for the many friends and communities that make this possible. During the summer she works as a lead instructor for Outward Bound Canada and most of her winter is spent working at the Durrand Glacier. She feels that working with others in the mountains as a guide is one of the most fulfilling and fascinating ways to support and witness positive human development and personal growth.
