It was in a college geology class that I fell in love with the National Parks. It became my goal to see as many of our Earth’s Natural Wonders as possible. I have a love of words and a love of the outdoors, so I wanted to work with people who needed my technical aspect of writing scientifically. I am also an Active Duty Army Wife, so I have had the honor of living all over the country and seeing many National Parks.

In my free time I love to read adventure books. I also enjoy white water rafting, swimming, inner tubing in the river or on the snow, and am learning how to kayak.

I joined Polar Cruises in June of 2016 and have been so excited to learn more about the Arctic and Antarctica. I will be boarding the Ushuaia in March of 2017 and I am really looking forward to seeing Antarctica for the first time. I can’t wait to see my first sunrise among the icebergs. I’m hoping to see whales and penguins and seals on my voyage.
