Our Board of Directors
From Vancouver Island to Halifax, with experience in botanic gardens, parks, museums, aquariums, science centers and historic sites, our elected board members are responsible for the day to day work of Interpretation Canada.
Jennifer Dick - Chair (she/her)
Jennifer is passionate about connecting people to the world around them. She lives and works in the homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron-Wendat Nations.
Jennifer is Royal Botanical Gardens’ Manager of Interpretation where she oversees interpretation in their 11 square-kilometres of gardens and nature sanctuaries. From visitor programs, tours, and events to signage, exhibits, and training, she enjoys the variety and seasonality of RBG. Her adventure in interpretation began at Bonnechere Provincial Park in 2001. A BSc in Biology, BA in Anthropology, and a graduate diploma in Science Communication have served her well in her career working for museums and not-for-profits across Canada including the Canada Science and Technology Museum, Ducks Unlimited Canada, and the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

She currently manages, coordinates, and delivers school programs at Milner Gardens & Woodland, which is located in the unceded territory of the Qualicum First Nation, and does contract work for the Ecoforestry Institute Society in the homeland of the Snuneymuxw and Stz'minus First Nations. She is a certified teacher and commutes by kayak.
Amanda Greene - Membership Secretary
Amanda didn’t always know she wanted to be an interpreter. As a child she was a voracious reader, devouring every book she could find on the topics of history and medicine. This led her to believe that her future calling would be either as a doctor or as a history professor. After completing a history degree (focusing on social and medical history) and an education degree as well as enjoying a recurring summer position as Education Coordinator at Resurgo Place, home of the Moncton Museum, Amanda realized that her true calling was in the museum sector. She is currently Education Coordinator at the New Brunswick Museum and plans to keep reading, learning, studying, and educating for the rest of her life.
Munju Ravindra - Conference Chair
