Andrea Prazmowski was certified as an ANFT guide in 2017 and continues to learn with every walk she guides, every moment of training and mentoring new guides, and every step on a forest path. From the pussy willow tree in her childhood backyard to the waters of the Ottawa River and the wilds of the Nahanni River, she has found many teachers and companions along the way and is deeply grateful for them as well as for the ANFT and the worldwide community of Forest Therapy Guides. Andrea has a Bachelor of Journalism degree and is a freelance writer and editor. For more than 20 years she’s facilitated learning groups and community partnerships of various kinds, including with faith communities and sustainability initiatives. She has a Permaculture DesignCertificate, is trained in Reiki and Healing Pathway, and is a Certified HikeLeader with Hike Ontario.
