Growing up in northern BC, Tiara found herself snowboarding down mountainsides during the winter and climbing up them during warmer months. Curious about other corners of BC, she moved to Victoria after completing her undergrad in International Studies and Development & Sustainability at Simon Fraser University. Fascinated by old-growth ecosystems and intent on serving the community sector, she started canvassing for AFA in 2015 and eventually became the Victoria Canvass Manager. She now works as the Administration & Development Assistant and is pursuing her MBA in Community Economic Development through Cape Breton University. You can find Tiara working at the AFA office, out in the community fundraising, or in the wild exploring old-growth forests with the team.
