Hi! I'm Brook. I'm grew up in a small ski town in British Columbia, Canada, and after moving to the coast of BC (Vancouver) for university for 5 years, my home base is now in Squamish.
I love being in the forest walking or running or just looking at mushrooms, rock climbing, swimming in lakes, yoga, dancing/flailing my limbs around, eating sustainably (veganism), expanding my mindset through living new experiences and meeting new people, and above all, reveling in simple pleasures like coffee, sun on my skin, and long bus rides with my music and journal.
My undergraduate degree is in science - Food, Nutrition, and Health, with a minor in commerce, but my main source of income has been in the food and beverage industry for the last nearly 10 years - serving, bartending, cooking, barista-ing (is that a word?), catering, and even being a food safety auditor.
I only speak english fully, however I am trying to learn Spanish, and I do have my minimal Canadian school system french as well.
Overall, my skills are wide and varied, I like to think of myself as someone who is a doer and a problem solver. I'm pretty fit and I learn very quickly!
I love writing, and could definitely help with anything in that respect whether it be advertising or social media or creative projects.
I have a ton of experience in the kitchen - I'm always happy to make plant based meals and snacks. And of course the drinks to go with them! Since my degree is in nutrition I'm also able to make meal plans.
I'm also good with pets - I've had a variety my whole life and recently have been doing dog sitting and walking on the side.
I have my permaculture design certificate and some gardening experience as well, mostly with planting season when I was living on an off-grid homestead.
