Reta is an all around whitewater paddling enthusiast that specializes in whitewater stand up paddling.  She has paddled on rivers in Alberta, British Columbia, Colorado, Costa Rica and Ecuador.

In addition to SUP you can always find Reta going with the flow; singing her way down a river behind the oars, working on crushing bigger lines in her kayak or sending it!  Reta just wants to be on the water!

Reta is the founder of CANRVRSUP Instructor Collective.  She started the collective to bring instructors together in hopes of supporting her passion to grow a safe community of River Stand Up Paddlers through quality instruction and training. As head instructor and Paddle Canada Certified Instructor Trainer, she plans to work with all the collective instructors to provide high quality training for all students wanting to take courses related to SUP.

Reta fell in love with SUP after she was first introduced to it in 2010.  It is a sport that anyone can enjoy and the sport can be as challenging as you want it to be as you progress from flat water on lakes to whitewater on the rivers.

Reta's favourite places to paddle are the Kananaskis Valley in Alberta, Trail Wave on the Columbia River in British Columbia and the Tana River in Ecuador.
