Andrea had her first travel experience as an AFS exchange student to Norway for her junior year of high school. After college she worked as a tour guide in both Glacier and Denali National parks and led outdoor adventure trips for teens in the Pacific Northwest. Trading mountains for the sea, Andrea worked as a third mate aboard an expedition ship for several years before settling down on Bainbridge Island with her husband and young son. She joined Earthbound Expeditions in 2012, and boldly holds the reins of Guest Communications as editor, proof reader, writer and materials distributor. We thank the universe daily for her cheerful dedication.
