“I can’t imagine a better place to learn about natural systems than Selkirk College. Not only do we have access to amazing field sites but student success and quality instruction is at the forefront of what we do.”  —Allison Lutz, Geography Instructor 

I have been teaching Geography and related courses in the School of Environment & Geomatics and the School of University Arts & Sciences since 1997. My education includes a degree in Geography from the University of Victoria (1992) and a master’s degree in Geography from York University (1995). Prior to working at Selkirk College, I have lived throughout British Columbia, working for the Ministry of Forests and for several small environmental consulting firms. 

Originally from Smithers, BC, I was drawn to the Kootenays for the incredible natural beauty and the recreational opportunities that the mountains and rivers provide. The Kootenays are a fabulous place to teach students about geography because of the living lab outside the classroom. I enjoy teaching at Selkirk College because we are truly vested in our students. I have the pleasure of getting to know students and the time to focus on quality instruction. Outside of the college, I enjoy spending time with my family and am an active volunteer in the community.
