Don Martinson

Born and raised in Utah, Don was fortunate to have the best “natural playground” imaginable, with mountains, deserts and canyons in his backyard. He caught the travel bug while studying and working in Europe in the '80s (student at University of Copenhagen; resort restaurant worker in Murren, Switzerland). After college, he was hired by United Airlines in 1986 – when airlines were fun! Based in Chicago, Washington, San Francisco and Denver during his airline career, Don visited a great portion of the world – challenge him to name all the world capitals! Originally hired as a private group coordinator in 1995, he worked mainly with museums, zoos, alumni associations and other non-profit groups. Don also served as a “city guide” in Halifax for NHA’s Harp Seal Watch, in Winnipeg for Polar Bear Watch and was the Uganda Primate Watch destination manager. After a hiatus from NHA, Don returned in 2007 as marketing manager for travel agency sales and in July 2008, he was elected a member of the VAST (Virtuoso Active & Specialty Travel) committee for a 2-year term. With his Utah roots and his 14 years living in Colorado, Don loves to ski, hike and mountain bike. He also enjoys playing soccer with several NHA staffers and coaches his daughter’s soccer team.
