I became a tour leader after attending a festival called Burning Man in the US. While I was there, I realised how much there is to see and do in the world and made the decision to live life to the full and try to experience as much of it as possible. So, I began working in the last frontier in Alaska, and have been in the tourism industry ever since.
My favourite thing about being a tour leader is answering questions and helping people. I’ve been doing it for over five years now and I really enjoy it. My summers are spent on the road, and winters in Colorado, where I work as a bus driver for Beaver Creek ski resort. I live in a quaint mountain town with my boyfriend Lukas, and when I’m not working I love being outdoors, hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing and doing yoga. I am also a big movie fan; in fact when I was growing up, my family operated a drive in-movie theatre in Tacoma, Washington.
My favourite things about the United States are the friendly people and diverse nature. Many of my passengers have remarked about how curious and nice American people are, and have been awe-struck by the beauty here. I feel the same way, and hope to share that enthusiasm with future travellers.
My advice to people visiting the States is be prepared for any type of weather. The United States is huge and is home to many types of terrain. Don't leave home without a rain jacket (or disposable poncho), warm clothing, and a hat; one for sun, and one for warmth. Also, laugh whenever possible! A positive attitude is an essential thing to bring with you.
