Regional Engagement Manager
Peyton spent most of her life on the traditional, unceded territory of the Tla’amin First Nation along the Sunshine Coast of BC. Here, Peyton discovered a profound connection to nature and sought to explore natural systems by pursuing a formal education in geography from Vancouver Island University. Now gratefully living on the traditional territory of the S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō) First Nation in Deroche, and drawing on an extensive background in emergency management, Peyton seamlessly transitions into the role of Regional Engagement Manager. She leverages her crisis response expertise to foster community connections and resilience in environmental initiatives, ensuring a holistic approach to community engagement and the protection and restoration of the Fraser Watershed. In her free time, Peyton enjoys kayaking, trail running, yoga and pottery.
