The management of The Lodge at Pine Cove (http://www.frenchriver.com), an upscale French River wilderness lodge that specializes in outdoor adventure packages, themed retreats, and romantic couple’s getaways, is pleased to announce that Joni Cooper has joined The Lodge at Pine Cove team as the new Program Director. Cooper, who started working at the French River lodge on May 3rd, will be taking over from current Program Director Nicola Ross in late June.
“We are happy to welcome Joni Cooper on board,” states Alex Strachan, owner of The Lodge at Pine Cove. “Joni will be responsible for co-ordinating our current programming at the Lodge, such as the upcoming Creative Writing Retreat on May 9 -14th and the Body and Soul Yoga Retreat on May 23 – 26th. In addition to the many onsite activities available at The Lodge at Pine Cove, including canoeing, kayaking, sightseeing and hiking trips etc., we will be working together to develop new programs that will be of interest to both lodge guests and local residents, like film and speaker nights,” says Strachan.
Joni Cooper is an internationally respected film festival producer, and passionate outdoor enthusiast. Prior to her new position at The Lodge of Pine Cove, she was program director for the Banff Mountain Festival. Cooper also held the position of executive director of the DOXA Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver, and for 15-years, managed content and programming for the Banff World Television Festival.
“I'm extremely excited to join Alex Strachan and his amazing team at The Lodge at Pine Cove, and look forward to my new role assisting with program growth and development,” says Joni Cooper. “Working with stories of inspiration and adventure every day through the Banff Mountain Festival, I was led to examine my own life. What was I missing? So when Alex from The Lodge at Pine Cove came knocking, I decided it was time for an adventure of my own -- and made the decision to leave the chaotic world of festivals behind to enter the lovely realm of The Lodge at Pine Cove,” explains Cooper.
