Kodee, a Bozeman, Montana native, developed an affinity for nature and the adventures that come with it while growing up in the Big Sky state. Kodee attended college in Jamestown, North Dakota, where she studied History and Spanish while also playing on the school’s soccer team. She first left the country to study Spanish through a winter program in Costa Rica and developed a passion for travel.
After graduating, Kodee toured the U.S. raising funds for a micro-financing foundation before heading to Latin America to teach English and immerse herself in Spanish-speaking cultures. She fell in love with teaching during her time abroad, and upon return to the States, started a career as an environmental educator on the East Coast with Nature’s Classroom.
Kodee has remained committed to a life of education, travel and volunteering, often combining all three together. This will be her sixth summer with VISIONS. She’s worked for VISIONS in the DR, Peru and Ecuador, and looks forward to another season in the idyllic Andes and Galapagos Islands. Kodee will be joined by her full team of qualified leaders.
