Mena was a fall/winter conservation intern in 2021/2022 with the NCC Norfolk office in Southern Ontario. Mena is part of the Canada Conservation Corp program and is currently working on the final stage, where she will be implementing a community service project in her hometown, Ottawa.
She plans to strengthen her conservation and leadership experience more this year. Mena also plans to take a paddling course this summer and continue to work on her outdoor skills. It is her goal to be an outdoor guide one day.
On her spare time, she can be found painting for her Etsy shop, camping in Ontario and hiking the Ottawa/Gatineau trails.
