Keswick, ON

Amanda brings her keen eye for travel and event planning to our Operations Team, bolstered by over a decade of experience managing events for the Toronto Film Festival and other swanky clientele across Canada (she's fancy like that).

Her passion for creating memorable experiences (particularly around a great meal) makes her the perfect fit as an Operations Manager, planning awe-inspiring events for our clients.

In her spare time, Amanda loves exploring the great outdoors either on the road with the sunroof down, or on the ATV trails near her hometown of Keswick, Ontario. Indoors, she's known for being a bit of a 'sushi savant', and kicking back on the couch with the latest Reality TV with her dog, Rebel.

Our resident "Mountain Man", if there's a job in the wild, chances are Andrew's had it. Ski Patrol? Check. Whitewater Kayak Instructor? Check. Spartan Race Medic? Somehow, even that too.  To say he's big on the great outdoors (and every Canadian cliche) is an understatement. Andrew lives, breathes, and (literally) eats the wilderness.

Andrew joins the Moniker team from his home within the Rocky Mountains, in Canmore, AB, leading the Trip Planning & Operations team where he brings his talents to coordinating gobs of detail and data into seamless execution of our retreats. He's also a licensed Medic which comes in handy when our guests have a little too much fun on destination!
