The Team

Shona Nash

Expedition Manager

Shona has always loved to travel and seizes any opportunity to see and experience more of the world. Having spent much of her childhood in Brazil, living along the Amazon River, she developed an appreciation for different cultures and languages from an early age. Since then, she has been lucky enough to live in Italy and explore New Zealand, Australia, Europe and America, with many more destinations on the horizon!

With an inability to sit still for long, Shona enjoys spending her spare time trying out different sports. Her favourites have been hiking, cycling, rock climbing, and skiing. She has also dabbled in cheerleading and aerial hoop, which were a lot more fun than expected! When she has to sit still, Shona enjoys reading a good book, knitting, or making use of her music degree.
