Suzanne grew up in Massachusetts and headed to Colorado in 1980 where she fell in love with the majestic Rocky Mountains and Boulder's laid back atmosphere and has called Boulder home ever since. As luck would have it in 1995, she met Ben (NHA founder & President) and his wife Laura and became friends. A few years passed, Suzanne had her second child and found herself searching for a job that was flexible so she could balance work & family time. Natural Habitat was growing and in 2000 welcomed her in and it was a perfect fit! Beginning as assistant to the office manager and transitioning into the reservations department, they squeezed her into a utility room with a pile of papers! Her role has evolved over the years to become our Adventure Gear & Pre Trip Services Coordinator. Since touching a gray whale in Baja on her first NHA journey she was hooked on wildlife adventures as well as photography and could not believe what she had been missing! Her NHA travels have taken her all around the planet~ to sail the Inside Passage with Orcas, hear howling Wolves in Yellowstone and appreciate the beauty of the geology and wildlife of Newfoundland. Some of the most unforgettable adventures are the ones she was able to share with her children~ getting up close and personal with the Grizzlies of Coastal Katmai with her son, Polar Bears of Churchill with her daughter and the wonder of the Galapagos Islands on our family departure with both of them. Lots of laughs with all of the kids on the trip! New Zealand's South Island, its jaw dropping beauty and eco-system diversity and of course seeing the illusive Kiwi foraging on the beach, truly amazed her. Suzanne's crowning jewel, trip of a lifetime was heading through the Drake Passage to explore the Antarctic Peninsula where she hopes one day to return.
