Mandy Scott grew up in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts where she enjoyed numerous outdoor pursuits including skiing, horseback riding, tennis and hiking. She was also lucky to enjoy the rich cultural offerings of the area and developed a deep love for theatre and music. As the youngest of four children, Mandy had many opportunities to explore the U.S. on ski trips, business trips with her parents, family visits and other modes of entertainment. Her entire family of six attempted only one actual vacation together, which was the inspiration for the popular film National Lampoon's Vacation.
In 1992, Mandy moved to Boulder to attend the University of Colorado where she majored in theatre and was a member of the ski team. Mandy fell in love with the area not only for its incredible beauty, but also the awesome music scene. She quickly discovered that working in the music industry meant she could see all the free shows she wanted. Mandy spent the next 10 years working in every aspect of the music business from hanging posters and working security to management and booking. She even worked for a travel agency that catered to touring rock bands. With the birth of her son in 2002, Mandy settled in nearby Longmont where she taught tennis for the City of Longmont while also reigniting her passion for acting with the local theatre community. Mandy and her family divide their time between competitive sports, theatre, hiking, rock concerts and spending time with friends.
Mandy has been lucky enough to visit Brazil’s Pantanal region, Patagonia, Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon River Basin with Nat Hab. The immersion in nature and the beauty of these remote areas and their inhabitants has been a magnificent experience. Mandy is excited to share her love of the natural world, conservation and pure fun as part of the Nat Hab team.
