 “I would hire her in a heartbeat and I have high standards.”

Ken Wylie / IFMGA & ACMG Mountain Guide

“She shows up 100%. If Meaghan’s given a job, you know it’ll get done well and with a good attitude. Her commitment to her fellow instructors, students and work was unwavering.”

Laurie Skreslet / Professional Mountaineer / First Canadian to summit Mt. Everest

"Meaghan has the energy of a cheetah and the charisma to motivate even the most terrified of back-country campers. She saw to both our medical emergencies and psychological emergencies better than any health care professional I have ever met. She can not only patch up your wounds from falling down a hill, she can then convince you to get up and march up same hill and enjoy it!"
