Lindsey Le Milliere
Lindsey has always loved the ocean – growing up on the North Devon coast of England, Lindsey moved to Victoria for the 2019 summer.

Hanna moved to Victoria from Midland Ontario to be closer to the ocean and couldn’t be happier with that decision. Hanna recently graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science. Growing up, most of her summers as a child were spent camping and surfing which kickstarted her love for the environment.
Born and raised in Victoria BC, Leah is currently studying nursing at Camosun College. Her love for the ocean comes from her grandparents; always spending her childhood with them on the water. She joined us this 2019 season as a sales agent and in her spare time enjoys hiking – and whale watching!
Sabrina grew up in Nova Scotia and graduated from Nova Scotia Community College with a degree in Tourism Management. Her love for marine wildlife started when she saw a Fin Whale off the coast of Cape Breton at age 18.
