Andrea caught the travel bug at an early age, having grown up in such diverse places such as Japan, New Zealand, and New Jersey. After earning a degree from the University of Denver, she went on to guide in the Hawaiian Islands, living in a one-room cottage overlooking the Pacific shores. Andrea began working in our Boulder office in 1994. After five years, she returned to the field to guide groups on our New Zealand, Alaska and Churchill expeditions. Andrea has since returned to Colorado and is once again working in the office. She continues to share her love of the natural world by guiding a few trips each year. Andrea has traveled to the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon, Africa, Alaska, Canada, Costa Rica, Belize, Patagonia, Mexico, Iceland, Antarctica and Australia.

She is so knowledgeable about the area and her love for the outdoors shines through. Her sense of humor and enthusiasm are a delight to be around, and she is always a professional. She was on top of every detail, kept the trip well organized. Along with her excellent qualities as a leader, she is a remarkable woman and was a joy to travel with.
