Isaiah, one of our program directors

While Isaiah grew up in rural Oklahoma, the seeds of curiosity for the larger world were planted in him. In college, he earned a BS in Elementary Education and a Masters in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management, and found opportunities for the global education of travel and cultural exchange. His experiences abroad include working in the UK, Peace Corps in the Marshall Islands, recreation work in Japan, and cultural explorations of Latin America. Such experiences have inspired him to both plan and guide relevant travel experiences for others. Besides leading trips in Eastern US for 18 years, he has also led trips around Europe and Latin America. Isaiah, his wife Kim and son Walker live in Asheville, NC where they enjoy being outdoors, playing music with friends, and partaking in all the local eccentricities.
