After Malia's junior year of high school, she got opportunity to intern at Nat Hab over the summer, which she gleefully accepted. That role led to another summer internship, and three years later, she found her place with the company in the Reservations department. Since that first influential trip to see the polar bears, Malia has visited the Galapagos Islands, Belize, and has returned again to Churchill, this time in summer to see the enchanting beluga whales—all with Nat Hab. She has also visited England and New Zealand on solo trips, enjoying every second of her global discoveries. Whenever possible, Malia spends time with her beloved yellow lab, Hazel, who works hard at the office too! Well, if you count napping under Malia's desk and begging her “coworkers” for treats, that is. Thanks to Nat Hab, Malia is eager to see as much of this wild world as she can, and to help the guests she serves discover it as well.
