Biography

Growing up in Montreal, one could say that Geneviève was raised by Canada’s ever changing seasons, spending most of her childhood outdoors.  At an early age she began canoe-camping, a popular Canadian pastime.  Paddling through lakes and carrying her canoe into the wilderness, she spent her summers camping, trekking, and gliding her way through the Canadian countryside.  As a certified adventure travel guide, Gen also led tours for many years: canoeing, kayaking, cooking outdoors, leading guide orientations, and hiking in the warmer months, or snowshoeing and skiing her way through the winter.  Gen has traveled throughout North America from the Hawaiian Islands to the enigmatic Western National Parks, from the grandiose Rocky Mountains to the frozen Arctic Circle.  Today, after almost fifteen years with Windigo, her expertise allows her to skillfully supervise her team, overseeing every detail from early development to operations in the field.
