Communications & Administration Manager


Tori Escallier

Tori is thrilled to bring 15 years’ experience in non-profit administration and program management – and a lifelong passion for exploring wilderness – to the FMCBC. Raised on Vancouver Island by nature enthusiast parents, she grew up adventuring the rugged mountain trails and shorelines of the West Coast. As a trail runner in her adult life, Tori fondly recalls hometowns and vacations by the vistas she peacefully rambled along. Now a mom with two young daughters, Tori and her family spend their free time camping by bodies of water and packing out as far as their 8 legs will carry them (12 legs when their Beagle, Watson, leads the way!). 

Tori’s BA in Health and Community Services from UVIC, and background in community capacity development, guide her efforts to increase health equity and quality of life for current and future residents of British Columbia. She is delighted and enthused to be working with the FMCBC – and member clubs – to provide this meaningful service.
