Your organization has growing pains. I can help. I work well in the office or remotely and am interested in projects of any size. I flourish on campaigns that embolden scientific literacy, conserves wildlife, advances environmental awareness, and makes the world healthier.

Tour Directing/ Guiding

I don’t just visit a destination through a bus window; I like to get outside and peel back that top layer to discover the meanings underneath. What’s the natural and cultural history? Who lives here? What’s the story? Why should we care about this place?

I offer professional guiding (development and leading) services for experiential education organizations and travel businesses with customers who are active, live life with gusto, value spontaneity, and thrive on flexibility.

Marketing, Outreach & Development

I have a professional background in marketing, project management, funnel optimization, and interpretive messaging. I help travel and outdoor interpretive organizations maximize customer engagement. I can also create development strategies and manage your events.

Here are some colorful examples of my work for travel and park groups who sought to connect the value their resource with the audience. These images (shown as embroidered patches) also provided a return on investment.
