Project Team Leaders

Phil McIntyre-Paul
Executive Director
(250) 804-1964

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
Executive Coordinator
(250) 832-0102

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.

Jacob (Sutra) Brett
Technical Trail Specialist
(250) 832-0102

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. 

Adrian Bostock
Project Operations Manager
(250) 832-0102

Adrian makes it happen on the ground. Where there's a plan and people willing to make it happen, he provides the glue that brings it all together and turns it into reality overseeing our field project teams, volunteer days, and stewardship support. It takes just the right mix of experience, skill, practicality, and good humour.


Seasonal Trail Crew - Resumes Welcomed

The Shuswap Trail Alliance is privileged to support projects throughout the region on behalf of our many partners.  Fundraising, donations, grants, and partner contracts allow us to hire project trail crews each year. Size, season, and timing is variable, depending on available funding and project priorities - so we always welcome submission of resumes from qualified candidates each season to keep on file should project funding be secured and warrant hiring. Recruitment is always pending funding, so we recommend checking back in seasonally to renew your resume. For a little more detail on what work on the trail crew might involve check the general posting here.
