Born and raised in Northern California, Mariah received her BS in Business Marketing from California State University, Chico in 2015. It was only until she studied abroad in Bilbao, Spain in 2014 that she found her love for traveling, content creation and filming. Having visited 15 countries prior to embarking on Semester at Sea’s fall 18 voyage, some of her favorite places in the world include Tel Aviv, Israel, the Croatian islands of Hvar and Brač and Spain’s Mediterranean coastline.
Since graduating University, Mariah has worked in the travel & tourism industry for the past three years in various fields relating to Digital Marketing and Videography. She hopes to continue along the path of owning her own video production company in California, focusing her filming interests on travel and live music/events. Outside of the office, Mariah enjoys hiking, the coastline, attending music festivals, and most importantly: tacos!
