Program Coordinator

Sydney is Cree from the Whitefish (Goodfish) Lake First Nation, German, and Danish on her mother’s side, with Dutch ancestry on her father’s side. She grew up on Coast Salish territory on the sunny beaches of Tsawwassen and in the beautiful mountain ranges of North Vancouver on Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, Stó:lō and Musqueam territories. In her spare time, you’ll find Sydney hiking in nature, playing sudoku, and eating all types of food. In fact, she loves food so much that she completed her Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Health – yum! Sydney is passionate about land-based learning, food as medicine, and connecting with youth.
