Kieren loves to dream of the ridiculous and make it a reality. Whether it’s cycling across Canada or converting a school bus into a full-time home, there is nothing Kieren enjoy’s more than testing the limits and learning more about herself!
As a mixed-race person of colour, Kieren’s lens focuses heavily on equity in the outdoors. With her first backcountry tenting experience as young as 6 weeks old, Kieren has had the unique experience of growing up watching how outdoor retailers, magazines and leaders had treated or represented her mother in comparison to her father. This created a lifelong yearning to create balance and equity in the outdoor industry.
Growing up in the outdoors has crafted Kieren into who she is today. After a personal deep-dive into her unique privilege of being white-passing, cis-gendered, and temporarily able-bodied growing up in the outdoors, Kieren‘s passions grew into increasing the inclusivity of the outdoors while protecting the spaces we love most.
You can find Kieren working alongside many of our friends, such as POW Canada, brand partners, through speaking and consulting contracts, and hosting workshops with Summit Within!
