Dianna has dedicated her life to conservation and stewardship. Helping people make connections with nature brings her endless happiness. With a Bachelor of Science in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism from the University of Maine, Dianna has worked as a naturalist all over the country serving with various public land preserves. As a naturalist she has had opportunities to lead expeditions and present programming through sandstone cliffs and hoodoos, upon alpine tundra peaks, through fragile taiga lowlands, along craggy cliffs in coastal temperate forests, through flowing tall grass prairies, in vast sagebrush-steppe ecosystems, along waterways in the depths of inner canyons, and through varying types of desert habitat.
Dianna loves to play outside, whether that is hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, paddling, or camping. She is grateful to her parents for instilling in her a passion for the natural world at a young age, as it has shaped her whole career and life path. When possible, she likes to combine her love for nature with her love for travel. She is fortunate to call Downeast Maine home, allowing her to spend time among the peaks and waters of beautiful Acadia National Park.
For a number of years, Dianna has been working with public lands and non-profits facilitating land conservation and preservation projects through volunteer management. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a naturalist with Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic as they provide some of the best natural experiences in the world. She looks forward to meeting you and sharing a journey of discovery together. Let the adventure begin!
