Beyond the typical Polynesian paradise, one may delve deeper, to find aquamarine lagoons affording the world’s most dazzling snorkeling and diving, an intriguing Easter Island tour and the sky-piercing volcanoes of the Marquesas.
After college, Lisa earned a master’s degree in International Studies, and her desire to explore the world brought her to Zegrahm Expeditions in 1993. Since then she has had the opportunity to visit all seven continents numerous times and feels very fortunate to have experienced the world with Zegrahm while helping to deliver unique educational adventures. She has held a variety of positions within the company; both in the office and in the field—from Program Manager to Expedition Leader—and for many years, Director of Expedition Staff. Today, she is very happy to return to the role Cruise Director. Lisa has an incredible ability to keep a dozen balls in the air and her remarkable sense of humor finds levity in even the most challenging situations. In addition to her work at Zegrahm, she and her husband own a restaurant on Whidbey Island in Washington State—an ideal place to raise their two children.
