Julie Bernier - Assistant Expedition Leader

Julie Bernier

Assistant Expedition Leader

A naturalist, traveller, and adventurer, Julie’s enthusiasm and passion are contagious. She is always excited to share her love and knowledge of the environment with others.

Julie is originally from Lévis, Québec, and the St. Lawrence River’s shores have always been a place of adventures and discoveries for her. Julie’s love of nature and thirst for exploration has brought her up north of 60, where she called the Yukon wilderness home.

Julie graduated in biogeography from the University of Quebec in Rimouski. She has participated in a variety of research projects, including the enumeration of stock of the pacific salmon on northern rivers, the behaviour of hoary marmot in the Yukon’s mountains, and camera trapping cheetahs and lions in Africa.

Like a lot of northerners, Julie possesses a versatile array of skills. She has worked as a wildlife technician, a guide, and in the film and dental industry. Always seeking new adventures or new berries patches, Julie also enjoys her quiet time at home in her off-the-grid cabin in the beautiful Yukon pine forest.

Since joining Adventure Canada in 2016, Julie has fulfilled her lifelong dream of sailing in Arctic waters and is excited to share her passion for adventure and discovery with others.
