Keren joined the NSRVCS board in April 2015. As a public health professional, she has deep appreciation for the natural environment, recognizing that it is an important factor that influences people’s health and wellness. She connects with nature by mountain biking and walking through the river valley, and skiing in the Rockies. Keren also has 10 years of experience in community activism, social entrepreneurship, and wellness initiatives. In addition to the advocacy work for a master plan understanding the Big Island Woodbend area, she has advocated for active transportation, serving on boards locally at the Edmonton Multicultural Coalition, and nationally with Girls Action Foundation. Keren lives next to the Mill Creek Ravine with her daughter and her husband Zack (also a NSRVCS member).
