Karin Leperi has traveled to 88 countries and has lived a life of adventure and intrigue in the process. In a previous life she was the first female flight engineer in the Naval Reserve Program - proudly qualifying on the VC-131-H which is really nothing more than an ex-Presidential plane that the Air Force used to ferry around a Texas President. When the Air Force got tired of the 2-engine turboprop, they gave it to the Navy and the Navy gave it to the Reserve Program.
Since then her love of all things aviation - and she certainly doesn't mind luxury such as in culinary, spas, and resorts - constantly compel her to continue circumnavigating the globe. But her real passion is with the natural landscape - with our national treasures - the parks, forests, and monuments.
