Kate (she/her)


I grew up on an Island off of Prince Rupert on the North Coast of British Columbia.  My parents and my community instilled in me a love of nature, and I feel energized being with the ocean or in coastal temperate rainforests.  After a stint of living in the Okanagan desert I have moved back to the ocean and live in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.  I am excited to share my love for the outdoors, community building, fat positivity, and inclusion!
Outside of this I am entrepreneur (Big Hello Social Co.,, run Fat Besties (, am a social worker with a background in harm reduction, volunteer, loud laugher, cooking lover, creative kind of person.
I look forward to meeting you and spending time outside!
