Kara Pantenburg has worked in the travel industry for over 18 years. Her passion for travel took her to Denver, CO, where she started her travel career working in a call center for a large corporate travel company. After a few years in Denver Kara found her way back to the Pacific Northwest and began working with a local travel agency, booking a variety of travel and handling all the office accounting. Always searching for new challenges, the next step in her journey brought her to work with an Expedition Cruise company as the Field Staff Coordinator. Life eventually brought Kara full circle back to her roots and she found herself with an opportunity to work with Earthbound Expeditions. Kara lives in historic Port Gamble with her two children, son Eli and daughter Kailee.
