Tricia Brennan

Tricia grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in the Northern Neck of Virginia, where every waking moment was spent outside, usually catching crabs, building forts in the woods or horseback riding. Her interest in travel was sparked in middle school with a service trip to the Dominican Republic. This cultural experience spurred her on in high school to visit Uganda where she taught English to school children through singing songs, and they in turn taught her tribal dances. Experiencing other cultures quickly became Tricia's passion, and she headed to Virginia Tech to earn a degree in tourism management. The beautiful Appalachian Mountains ignited her love for the outdoors, and she spent her free time hiking, camping, whitewater rafting and training horses. Having caught travel bug, she spent part of her second year studying international business in France and Germany. While Tricia was in Europe she visited as many countries as possible and somehow ended up swinging through a canyon in the Swiss Alps at the end of a bungee cord. Upon returning to the U.S., Tricia couldn’t sit still, so she promptly left again to spend her spring break in Costa Rica volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation center.

After completing her studies and working for a time as an event coordinator, Tricia embarked on her next adventure, a move out west to Colorado. Here, she has found fellow travel and outdoor enthusiasts at Nat Hab, and incredibly delicious beer. With the Rocky Mountains as her new playground, she is trying her hand at trail running and snowboarding. She hopes to visit each continent at least once, and is dedicated to helping others travel the globe as well.
