Regional Personnel


Shelley Nohels - Office Administrator -

For general inquires please contact Shelley Nohels.


Ashley Ekelund - Regional Coordinator -

Ashley has an educational background in International Relations and Development, and a strong track record of project management in the international non-profit sector. But being an avid hiker and outdoor adventurer, Ashley knew that BC would always be home and decided to shift her focus to environmental education instead. She trained as an outdoor adventure guide and spent 5 years working in the BC tourism sector overseeing backcountry trips throughout Western Canada. Her current role as Regional Coordinator with BCCF seamlessly combines both her non-profit administrative and environmental experience, and she is thrilled to be overseeing projects throughout Central and Southern BC.


Ainslie McLeod – Project Coordinator -

Ainslie has a background in environmental biology and marine policy. She has a love for the outdoors, conservation, and environmental education, which was fostered through her work on different conservation projects in British Columbia and Nova Scotia. Ainslie has excellent experience with project planning and project management. She also has experience working in the not-for-profit sector as a tour guide and an educational program developer. Ainslie is excited to be working as a project coordinator with BCCF, which combines her background experience, education and love for conservation to allow her to support the success of different conservation projects in her home province of BC.


BC Conservation Foundation respectfully acknowledges that we operate, work and play on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of many Indigenous Peoples throughout British Columbia. In Kamloops, our office is on the unceded and traditional territory of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) People and the T’kumlups Band.
