Bria Sallaway, Kitchen Coordinator

Bria Sallaway

It only took seeing the open house at the end my brother’s first Educo course in 2005 to convince me that this was where I needed to be. My following years as a student and staff at Educo have been full of self-realization and life-changing experiences, which have largely shaped who and where I am today.

Twelve years later I hold a Bachelor of Education, and teach on call in the Cariboo School District. This past summer I had the pleasure of taking on a new role at Educo and bringing another of my passions to life as Kitchen Coordinator. While I missed the incredible mountain experiences and group mentality of my previous Educo summers as a Course Instructor, I was quite happy to leave my hiking boots stashed away at the bottom of my closet for a little while. 🙂

When I’m not in the kitchen or a classroom, or spending time with friends and family, I am probably sitting somewhere quiet with a book or some music and enjoying a nice view. One of my personal favourites? The Educo site and Little Holden Lake, as seen from the back porch of Educo’s main cabin.

Bria is certified in Food Safe and is wise in the ways of out-trip food packing and off-the-grid cooking.
