Maria grew up on a farm near Prud’homme Saskatchewan where she developed a love for agriculture and the environment. She enjoys fishing, canoeing, playing sports and travelling. Graduating from a francophone school gave her a passion for culture and education. Maria is now a student in the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan. She is studying to be a high school teacher with a focus in Physics and French, however, she is looking forward to teaching a wide variety of subjects throughout her career. She is always eager to learn new things and she has recently developed a growing interest in ecology and environmental sciences.

Maria’s work with Troutreach will involve organizing learning activities around river systems and scientific research for students. She hopes to get these young citizens ‘hooked’ on science!
