About Melanie Frenette
While backpacking and working her way through Canada, France, Great Britain, Australia, Barbados and Costa Rica, Mélanie witnessed nature’s transformative power, which awakened a deep desire to protect it as best she could. So, she reoriented her professional path toward the environmental sciences, graduating from the McGill School of Environment in Montreal. When she’s not freelancing for local non‐profit conservation organizations or advising corporations on best environmental practices, you’ll find Mélanie scouting the woods or stand-up paddleboarding with her beloved sidekick, Rhéa, the cutest (and most stubborn) dachshund.
Fueled by her passion for outdoor adventure and her love of yoga, which she has been teaching for over 8 years, Mélanie launched Trail Junkies, a mindful mountain-biking guiding business in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. According to Mélanie, it is one of the many unique ways you can connect your internal “ecosystem” with the greater natural environment, to feel in sync with the beauty of nature.
Mélanie looks forward to sharing her tips on mindfulness with you, even while crossing the famous Drake Passage!
