Kirsten Mathison

Public Engagement Coordinator

After growing up on the prairies, Kirsten knew the West Coast was her home the minute she moved here to study Geography and Anthropology at the University of Victoria. Her passion for the environment and the ocean led to a number of roles involving communication, outreach, and engagement. Kirsten is passionate about bringing people together, inspiring positive change, and doing her part to work towards a just and sustainable future. Kirsten currently lives, works, and plays on the territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEĆ people. When she’s not at work, you’ll find Kirsten poking around the inter-tidal, hosting dinner parties, sailing, or crawling out of a cave.
