My Goals

I love my job & the tourism industry so will never retire! It is my passion to help especially the smaller operators hence my by-line 'It's not about the money' & I have recently started mentoring via TBCSA - I'd like to leave behind a legacy of legal empowerment.
If possible I'd like to become more involved in environmental issues & spend more time in the bush!
