Hi, there! I’m Leanne Schinkel, the new Strategy and Policy Consultant for SPRA. I was born and raised in Saskatoon, and recently moved back after six years living in northern BC. My varied background includes a BFA in Media Production and Studies from the U of R, five years working in the film industry, six years working in tourism marketing and community engagement, and front line adventure tourism experience in the skiing, white-water rafting, adventure photography, and tour boat industries. When I’m not on the job, I spend as much time as I can outside, traveling, and having adventures with my husband Graham, two-year-old daughter Fern, and rescue dog Ruby Tuesday.
