  • Adrienne Bosworth

    Historian
    Adrienne’s favorite things are rain and smoothly constructed sentences. Most days, she’d choose a rocky beach over a sandy one, and if possible would survive happily on smoked salmon. For most of her adult life Adrienne has worked on Expedition ships in some capacity, and she finds distinct satisfaction in wrangling logistics both onboard and ashore. Waking up to whales, sea birds, and remote coastlines allows for inarguably the best commute, and the best office.
