Guiding and Facilitation

Descended on her father’s side from a long line of teachers, Shelley loves to share her enthusiasms and knowledge with others. She has entertained and educated tourists from around the world as a bus tour guide and conference speaker. She has also facilitated and co-facilitated workshops on writing and scientific topics. An avid reader and consumer of information, she is willing and able to speak on a variety of subjects and apply her training and experience (not to mention her sense of humour) to engagements ranging from one-on-one tutoring to guided outdoor hikes and cycling excursions.
