Growing up in Canada with cousins, aunts and uncles scattered across the globe, she located where they lived on the world map hanging on the dining room wall—and traced the great rivers of the St. Lawrence and St. Maurice which flowed past her hometown of Trois-Rivieres—from the Great Lakes and northern headwaters of Lac St. Jean to the Atlantic Ocean. Always passionate to become a nurse and to travel—doing some good along the way—she was always curious about other great rivers of the world where family lived—the Seine, Thames and the Cam—and intrigued by the size of the Amazon—and vowed to eventually travel on some these other waterways in hollowed-out canoes, rafts and punts—and to meet some of her kin along the way.
