Kelsey completed her undergraduate degree at Thompson Rivers University studying Tourism Management majoring in Entrepreneurship and Marketing. Since 2015, she has been working alongside Courtney Mason on a research initiative that looks at the Barriers to Health and Physical Activity affecting Aboriginal Youth in city centers. Through this project she has volunteered with the Kamloops White Buffalo Metis Society on their FitNation initiative that brings physical activity and education programs to high school Aboriginal students in Kamloops.  As well, Kelsey is continuing her studies at TRU in the Masters of Science in Environmental Science under the supervision of Courtney. In this program she is focusing her research on the Ethical Issues in Sport Hunting Tourism Economies: investigating stereotypes, sustainability, and inclusion in British Columbia’s hunting industry. This research project aims to uncover the core ethical practices that are imperative to the sport and the growth of hunting as a tourism activity from the perspective of avid hunters.  Kelsey received the Ken Lepin Graduate Student Award (2016) and she was awarded the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) Master’s Fellowship.
