Linda loves Alaska! She moved to the 49th state to work as a geologist after living initially in Canada, then into naturalist guide work with NHA after she relocated to Kodiak Island, where she currently resides. When she’s not out sharing the wonders of the North Country with her guests, you’ll find her hiking, camping, exploring tide pools, cross-country skiing and ice skating on frozen lakes in winter. Linda’s spirit of adventure is infectious, and she loves to get others as excited about the Alaskan outdoors as she is. In the off-season she works for the local college and school district, sharing her knowledge of and passion for the outdoor world.

Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:
“Linda was outstanding. She very kindly spent a great deal of time with us at the beginning and the end of the trip and as a result we had a great time in Kodiak and got to see lots of interesting things and learn much about the local environment and culture. She is very knowledgeable about Kodiak culture and environment, and is eager to share that knowledge. I really appreciate all she did."
"Linda was the most perfect host! I wish I could give her a 20! She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and to make your travel and trip the best. Linda knows her community and is so familiar with the trip. Handling groups that do not know each other is a real talent. Her communication skills are excellent."
“Linda was on-time, offered suggestions and flexibility. She was exceptional. Because she lived on Kodiak she was very informed, very pleasant."
“Linda was great. Very helpful from the time I arrived. I loved her smile. She complimented Brad beautifully on and off the Ursus."
