Holly Glessner

Holly grew up in Iowa and was fortunate enough to have parents who loved to travel. Every year her family would take off to a different part of Mexico or Europe and would spend summers in northern Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Michigan. After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Public Relations and Communications, she spent a year in Chicago working for corporate America. Realizing the corporate world wasn’t for her, she headed west to Colorado and beautiful Boulder. Wanting something new, Holly discovered the travel industry and spent 13 years specializing in scuba diving tours and group travel around the world before ending up at Natural Habitat Adventures -- and boy, what a change that was! Who knew work could be so much fun? Holly has traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Europe and her favorite destination, Fiji. Holly has also visited Churchill, the Galapagos Islands, Turkey, the Bahamas, Alaska, Peru, South Africa, Botswana and most recently Buenos Aires, Argentina and Antarctica. When not working or traveling, Holly also enjoys camping, hiking, sea kayaking, scuba diving/snorkeling and playing tennis.
