Since 2006 Kristel Rensmaag has called Fort McMurray home. Prior to moving here to find employment as a teacher, Kristel lived on Vancouver Island for 6 years and grew up in Maple Ridge, BC. She loves traveling (she’s been to 15 countries!), playing volleyball and slo-pitch, coaching, the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. She lives with her cutie patootie daughters, Kenzie and Colbie, and her beautiful wife, Cristina.
She has been on the Pride YMM committee for two years and helped organize the first family friendly pride event in Fort McMurray. She is excited to be a part of the planning committee again for this year’s event.
She currently holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Victoria, Bachelor of Education from Vancouver Island University and a Master of Education from Nipissing University. Her favorite thing about counseling is building connections with individual students and helping them navigate through their emotions to build capacity within themselves to overcome whatever obstacles they may be facing or could face in the future.
