Expedition Leader / Lecturer / Naturalist / Consultant
Susan is a graduate of Cornell University, where among other projects she wrote and presented a radio program on bird biology while a student there. For 30 years she has been exploring and guiding in the remote corners of the earth. In her early years she guided trips and trained teachers for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. She started working on expedition cruise ships in 1989 as a natural history lecturer on voyages to such remote areas as the coral reefs of the Caribbean, South Pacific including French Polynesia; the rainforests of Central America and the Amazon; in the High Arctic of Alaska, Russia, Canada, Greenland, British Isles, Norway and the North Pole and in the Antarctic, along the Peninsula, Ross Sea and the Far Side. In 1993 she began as Expedition Leader in these same remote areas. Her keen observations and research helped her to discover new areas where wildlife can be found throughout the Arctic and Antarctic. Susan has lead more then 140 expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic.
In 1985, Susan developed Northwind Nature Education Opportunities Inc, a non-profit environmental education organization that promotes understanding of remote wilderness areas through teacher and student training workshops and natural history travel programs. In 2004, she also formed the company Expedition Cruise Planning and Logistics that consults to various expedition travel companies guiding their expedition operations, as a representative to the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators, recruits and train expedition staff and planning and execution of marine based expeditions for several international private travel companies.
