The Highline Team

Highline embodies a playful, authentic, community-minded, and earth-friendly approach to life in the Rockies. Our mission is to celebrate and inspire preservation of the vast wilderness and unique culture of the mountain towns of the Canadian Rockies.

Kristy Davison, Publisher + Editor In Chief

Kristy grew up in Canmore with the Bow River running through the backyard. She studied photography at the Alberta College of Art + Design and webdesign at Mount Royal University before founding Highline Magazine in 2008. Caffeine aside, she is sustained by a wholesome diet of backcountry lodges, live music, dirt and sunshine. Mmmmmm-mmmm.


Corrie DiManno, Managing Editor

Photo1Corrie hasn’t strayed far from the Bow Valley since graduating five years ago with a degree in photojournalism. She lives for sunny days, Wild Flour’s cranberry almond muffins, good jokes, and any opportunity to quote the movie Goodfellas. Her favourite spot around these parts is the Fenland Trail and one of her biggest feats to date is climbing Cascade Mountain in a beat up pair of black Converse.

Dee Medcalf, Associate Publisher + Distribution Manager


Dee is from Australia, but one visit to the Canadian Rockies six years ago was enough to make her fall in love with everything the mountains have to offer: outdoor adventures, great friends and community as well as the occasional vanilla latte at Wild Flour.


Taryn Hajnrych, Online Editor


This country-girl-turned-mountain-enthusiast first moved to the Bow Valley for the proverbial “one summer” in 2007. Seven years later and four failed attempts at moving, she has finally figured out that Banff is a pretty great place to call home. Forever restless and indecisive, Taryn is plagued by her ever-evolving “to-do” lists and a mountain of adventurous vacation plans. When she’s not busy talking someone’s ear off (it’s the constant caffeine jitters), she can be found playing outdoors with Jiri, her equally as exuberant Bernese mountain dog.

Camara Miller, Creative Media Consultant


Originally born and raised in Calgary, it didn’t take much arm-twisting to get Camara to relocate to the Valley in 2009. When she isn’t working in audio production at The Banff Centre, Camara is coffee-drinking, story-hunting, cat video-watching, trail-hiking, dog-walking, elk bugle-mimicking, picture-drawing, and generally getting up to no good.


Chloe Vance, Journalist + Neighbour in Chief

Chloe, a gal with a hankering for fresh pow.

Chloe’s family is confused as to how a little girl from Toronto developed such a passion for the wilderness. Wanderlust has led her to guide expeditions in the far North, circumnavigate New Zealand by bicycle, and found an organization that provides outdoor education. In 2010, Chloe and her husband Rob moved to Canmore, a natural place to grow some roots. Inspired by her new backyard and all the interesting people in it, she delved into writing, story telling and getting to know her neighbours (among an ever-evolving list of other projects).

Nicole Larson, Advertising Sales + Events

391150_10152765587195080_1802714220_nBorn in Calgary, Nicole has called the Bow Valley home since 2009. When she’s not juggling one of her many jobs she can usually be found playing in the mountains or hanging with her fur babe, Numa. She loves backcountry adventures, sushi and chilling with her buds. But she loves post-outdoor activity beers even more.
