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.
Pam Murray - Chair (she/her)
I have worked as a front-line interpreter since 1997, for Parks Canada, Metro Vancouver Parks, and Arenaria Research and Interpretation in BC Parks, often in positions responsible for training and managing seasonal staff. I currently manage, coordinate, and deliver school programs at Milner Gardens & Woodland, which is located in the unceded territory of the Qualicum First Nation, and do contract work for the Ecoforestry Institute Society in the homeland of the Snuneymuxw and Stz'minus First Nations. I volunteer for the Protection Island Museum, am a certified teacher, and commute by kayak.
Jennifer Dick - Secretary (she/her)
Jennifer is passionate about connecting people to the world around them and currently does as a settler in the homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron-Wendat peoples.
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 and a graduate diploma in Science Communication from Laurentian University 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.
