Originally hailing from Portland, Oregon, Amelia has steadily made her way east over the years. A graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder, she now lives in New York City, where she’s thrilled to join Extraordinary Journeys in creating unforgettable travel experiences for clients. Her first encounter with Africa was through Semester at Sea, a multi-country ship-based study abroad program where she got to explore parts of South Africa and Namibia. To date, she has visited more than 25 countries, including studying in England, back-packing through Southeast Asia, and teaching English in Thailand. She can’t wait to share her passion and know-how as one of our safari coordinators.
