With a passion for travel, wildlife, and meeting new people, Cara joined The Big Journey Company team as a Tour Director after traveling with her dad to Kenya and Rwanda as a BJC tour participant.
Cara’s had the great fortune to travel to more than 30 countries. With husband and two daughters, she especially loves exploring America's amazing national and state parks and has visited nearly all 50 U.S. states! Treasured memories include exploring Viet Nam and Cambodia, trekking in Nepal, snorkeling in the Galapagos, driving across southern Patagonia, seeing the archaeological wonders in Egypt, and the Masai Mara’s magnificent wildlife. But if she could re-experience only one travel adventure, it would be trekking to see the mountain gorillas in Rwanda!
In her free time, Cara loves planning the next adventure, reading, cooking, crafting, and hiking or paddling near her home in the Pacific Northwest.
Top Travel Tip - Packing cubes for organization AND good reading material for entertainment during unexpected delays! Choosing a book that is set in the location I’m visiting, ideally written by someone who lived there, you get more out of the book and it makes the travel experiences much more reflective, seeing details otherwise overlooked.
