Our Board of Directors
From Yellowknife to Saint John, with experience in botanic gardens, parks, aquariums, museums and historic sites, our elected board members are responsible for the day to day work of Interpretation Canada.
Pam Murray - Chair
Pam first became involved with Interpretation Canada more than 15 years ago, when she attended a regional workshop and realized that interpreters were her people. She is co-editor of the Interpreter’s Big Book of Disasters, and commutes by kayak.
Jennifer Dick - Secretary
Jennifer is Royal Botanical Gardens’ Interpretation Officer where she manages interpretation in their 11 square-kilometres (2700 acres) of gardens and nature sanctuaries. From visitor programs, tours, and events to signage, exhibits, and training, she enjoys the diversity and seasonality of RBG. Her adventure in interpretation began at Bonnechere Provincial Park over 18 years ago. 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.
Jo Hughes - Treasurer
A love for the outdoors has led Jo to practice the fine art of interpretation in a variety of venues across the country including parks, zoos and outdoor education centres. At the moment she runs the interpretation program in Manning Park (just outside Hope, BC) and in her free time is now trying to put her interpretive skills to work teaching a busy class of grade 4 & 5 students.
