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 has peacefully rambled along.

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.
