About Me
I am an American who came to Panama in 2004, as an animal trainer working on a film that hired the Emberá tribe as actors on the film. I was deeply touched by the warmth of the Emberá people and in fact, married an Emberá man, Otniel Barrigón.

We now run Emberá Village Tours out to his family's traditional village, located deep in the rainforest. We also operate Whale Watching Panama as I grew up boating in the San Juan islands watching orca whales and I have a biology and animal behavior degree. I found out that here in Panama it is one of the easiest and best places to see humpback whales in the world.

We love to share our knowledge and love for incredible richness of the natural world here and all its beauty as well as the fascinating, diverse and authentic indigenous cultures that can be found here in Panama with others.
