Instructor Bio

20160707_190547_Richtone(HDR)My name is Holly Kondreska and I am happy to call Thunder Bay my home. Originally from Yellowknife Northwest Territories, I’ve lived all over Canada, and shortly in Africa and even spent a year in France. I’m currently working on my French language skills which is very Canadian of me. I consider myself an active and adventurous person, my pursuits include extended paddling, hiking, SCUBA diving and have been known to climb the occasional tree.

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer with many great organizations and charities including first aid and medical coverage, Red Cross Disaster Response, relief work in Honduras (the first baby I delivered) and have trained with Global Medics in Toronto. After fifteen years working as a primary care paramedic I have much to draw on when preparing and delivering a course.

My most special adventure is being a single mom to an amazing five year old boy, completing construction of my tiny house and working towards my second undergraduate degree. Currently working in remote First Nations with Susan Buchanan Education Group and also recently became a Red Cross Instructor as well.
