Growing up paddling and exploring the woods in and around the Algonquin Park area, Parker has been passionate about the outdoors from a very young age. She developed her tripping and paddling skills at a summer camp on Lake Temagami, eventually completing a 2 month river trip in the Northwest Territories. She fell in love with the area and is very excited to be returned for a second summer with Canoe North in 2023.

In the winter you can find Parker studying Environmental Biology at the McGill University Agricultural Campus, and anxiously awaiting the summertime.
