Born and raised in the northeast, Christy spent most of her time outdoors, tirelessly exploring forests, rivers 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. At age 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, she earned a degree in psychology, then spent the next several years traveling, living and working in a variety of 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. She now manages operations for many of NHA's destinations and takes great pride in creating unique itineraries that bring NHA's travelers deep into some of the world's most wild, natural places. In her free time, she travels often, reads a lot, enjoys biking, camping and snowboarding, and never stops exploring.
