KRISTEN VERIN-TREUSCH, 42

owner/operator of Muddy Water Tours

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

Verin-Treusch has operated Muddy Water Tours since 2002 after returning from a trip to Scotland, where historical tours were popular and she noticed Winnipeg had nothing of the kind. She conducts walking tours of some of Winnipeg's most interesting areas, offering "a wide range of tourism experiences, from ghost-hunting to traditional historical walking tours with humour and flare."

Verin-Treusch, who spent 19 years working in child care prior to opening Muddy Water Tours, will wear costumes and take on fictional and historical personas to bring stories to life. She has three degrees: a bachelor of fine arts-honours from the University of Manitoba, a bachelor of arts-honours from the University of Winnipeg and a master's degree in Canadian history from the U of W and U of M. She is the founder of the Friends of the Vaughan Street Jail Inc., and won the 2008 Manitoba Tourism Partnership Award.
