Hi! I'm Judy! I've been a tour guide in Alaska since 2010 and before that, I worked in the Alaskan souvenir business selling Ulu knives, smoked salmon, etc. I've always loved to travel and be a tourist myself and I think this helps me provide excellent customer service to my tour groups.
My favorite part of the tours we provide is the stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Through the years I've become friends with some of the staff there and have learned a lot of the back stories about the animals (that's the info they don't post on the signs). It's fun to share something unique with my group that none of the other tour companies know! Hope to see you in my tour group someday!
I've been giving guided tours in Alaska since 2008 and have found it to be the most fun and interesting employment I have had. Although originally from Texas, I've found the great state of Alaska to be a beautiful place to live with many outdoor activities to enjoy with my wife and five children like fishing, hiking, camping, and rafting. It is a great pleasure to share my knowledge of Alaska with visitors from around the world!
Alaska is a unique place that continually impresses me with the magnitude of its’ beauty. I’m a transplant here, but teaching people to ski in the winter and giving tours in the summer has placed many of Alaska’s qualities into sharper relief through sharing this place with people from all over the world.
I came to Alaska 25 years ago to work in Homer for a summer commercial fishing and Alaska hooked me! I have guided for 25 summers, working at 6 wilderness lodges, Chenik Brown Bear Photography Camp, Denali National Park and for various companies driving Tour buses across the state. My formal education is in the natural sciences and I spend my winters working at the University of Alaska and volunteering at the Anchorage Museum and for the Anchorage Concert Association
