Born and raised in the northeast, Christy spent most of her time outdoors, tirelessly exploring forests, rivers, seas and beaches with her brothers. From a very young age, her adventurous spirit was fueled by travel and a steady influx of new places and new experiences. By the age of 11, she began studying Spanish, sparking a life-long love of languages and cultural discoveries. After participating in a full-immersion study-abroad program in Spain and earning a degree in psychology, she spent the next several years traveling and living in new places throughout North and Central America. Eventually, she made a home for herself in Colorado and found her way to Natural Habitat Adventures’ door. For well over a decade, she enjoyed working as an Adventure Director on our Operations team, managing operations for a wide variety of NHA's destinations and creating unique itineraries in some of the world's most wild natural places. Today, she brings her experience and expertise to the role of Adventure Specialist, inspired by her passion for connecting people with the natural world. In her free time, she travels often, reads a lot, enjoys biking, camping and snowboarding, and never stops exploring.
