Building cubby houses and hanging out in the bush with friends was Leonie’s thing as a child. Not much has changed she still really enjoys being outdoors especially if it includes kayaking, canoeing and camping.
Leonie is relatively new to Guiding (2012), she has made her passion her job and is loving it. Leonie has 18 years experience in kayaking. She found her strengths lie in long distance races, and has placed well in several events. She has been privileged to join Terry Bolland (Adventurer) on 2 of his expeditions in Canada. Leonie is an experienced kayaker, a canoe and kayak instructor, an educator, a qualified swimming instructor, a Bronze Medallion Life Saver and first aider. As a guide she loves taking people on a journey to get a different perspective of their surrounds and she loves sharing those ‘WOW’ moments. She delights in introducing people to kayaking and the social history of the areas. She particularly enjoys sharing the river experience with her clients
