We use this as a base from which to indulge our passion for the Green Mountain State by providing numerous four season adventures there, in addition to in Europe, elsewhere in North America and other destinations.
Deborah's outdoor adventure career stems from the melding of an award-winning career in corporate wellness, training, and human resources consulting with a personal passion for outdoor adventure, diverse cultures and foreign travel.
