Ali has been guiding at Camp Temagami since 2012, after ten years of being a camper. What she loves most about canoe tripping and guiding is being given the opportunity to work with campers and fellow staff who share the same sense of adventure and appreciation for ambling through territory that was once unknown to them. Her favourite trip meal is Chicken Noodle Stew. During the off-season, Ali studies political science at Carlton University in Ottawa. Ali has paddled over 3000 kilometers.
