“Most people you run into who enjoy the outdoors will tell you the same thing. It becomes a passion. It becomes who you are”. Carole has taken this passion and has given it wings, either in several podium placings in freestyle, and canoe slalom, to championing the quality of instruction in Ontario. Her paddling has brought the community closer to the sport in many ways, either by introducing kayaking or canoeing to others, or by encouraging people to participate in the great outdoors. Her instructional style incorporates athletic mind focus as part of whitewater paddling as a mindful approach to improving paddling skills. Carole has had much media coverage in several paddling magazines and interviews with CBC/Radio Canada, as well as writing canoe instructional books and producing videos with her husband Andrew.
