Always a lover of the outdoors and wilderness, Jillian discovered Kayaking quite by accident while traveling in Vietnam. After the first moment on the water she was hooked. It didn’t take long for her passion for rough ocean water and rock-gardens to develop. Sharing that passion is also a joy by empowering and inspiring others to learn and challenge themselves.
Jillian holds the British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader Award (formerly 4*) and is working on progression in the BC program.
Her favorite play-spots include the North Oregon Coast, Columbia Gorge, Mendocino and Monterrey.
