Hostel hostess 2. @Auberge Inn Hostel

I’ve always been drawn to the splendor of the Northern Ontario landscape. My extensive time spent road tripping through beautiful Canada has led me to appreciate nature’s glory during all seasons. I love being active outdoors and I take advantage of what each season has to offer. You can find me exploring lakes, camping, biking, hiking trails, kayaking, snowshoeing, and dog sledding.

When I am not enjoying my free time in nature I work in the social services field and manage a group home for children and youth with special needs in Toronto.   I am a registered Social Worker and a humanitarian at heart! I am often involved somehow in my community; most recently volunteering in a children’s after school program where I love planning the arts and crafts activities most of all.

I am a creative person who takes pleasure in self expression through a variety of mediums, like scrapbooking, painting, and mosaic tile work. I am passionate about photography, especially of people and nature. On my travels in India my peers called me “trigger finger” because I could not stop taking photographs of the amazing colours and details around me!

I absolutely love traveling and volunteering abroad and I am no stranger to spending time in hostels around the world. I feel that they are a wonderful opportunity to mingle with fellow adventurers and gain a richer travel experience!

I am excited to host you, in either French or English, here at the Auberge Inn on the largest fresh water island in the world! Let’s have some fun together! Hope to meet you soon!
