Phil McIntyre-Paul is one of the original "...what if..." guys that has helped make a dream become a reality. Through his tireless efforts, he has helped bring together a large majority of the regional trail stakeholders to sit down and discuss how this idea can become a reality. He has helped develop the Trail Alliance Business Plan, the Shuswap Trails Strategy, facilitate the creation of the Shuswap Trails Roundtable, and submited countless grant applications. Phil's background is in Community Development, Tourism Management and Experential Event creation and implementation.
Lori Schneider Wood
Lori Schneider Wood is also one of the "originals" - co-founding the Shuswap Trail Alliance with a broad circle of regional leadership in 2005. Lori's persuasive energy and ability to build lasting relationships has become a hallmark of the STA's mission to get people working together. She currently tag-teams with Phil to coordinate the day-to-day organization of the Shuswap Trail Alliance, as well as mobilize special projects like the Shuswap Trail Stewards Program.
Veda Roberge is the quintessential balance between positive energy and practical "let's figure this out and do it." She coordinates the daily projects, making sure tools, crews, volunteers, and technical partners are prepped and supported. She also anchor's the world of signs, materials, and supporting vendors.
Jacob (Sutra) Brett
Sutra is our lead technical advisor, designer, and trails specialist. He brings a particular sensitivity to designing for both the environmental and social needs of a trail, seeking to understand what motivates a person to walk, ride, or ski a trail as a core consideration in its design.
