Geneva Gamble 

From: Vancouver, BC

As a Field Instructor, I manage many aspects of the program, including all aspects of the daily itinerary during travel, guided excursions and sharing my knowledge about the country and customs we are visiting. 

Years as a Field Instructor with Nomad Travel:

I am coming into my second season with the Nomad. It has been one of the most exciting jobs I have had outside of being a music teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed learning and having a blast with both delegates and leaders.


I have a B.Mus from Capilano University in Jazz Studies and I am currently studying Business part-time at BCIT. 

Languages Spoken:

English and French

Professional Accomplishments:

  • Seasoned Studio & Professional Musician
  • Performed with critically acclaimed vocal jazz group Nitecap (2006-2009)
  • Poisson Award for Musical Achievement (2007)
  • Terry & Lynne Smith Memorial Scholarship for Musical Achievement (2005)

What I am Looking Forward to on the Nomad Travel Program:

What I am most looking forward to on the program is watching the students grow. It’s remarkable how much each delegate changes from the first time you meet until the day you head back home.  

My Favourite Nomad Travel Moment:

My favourite moment was when I got a delegation into their bathing suits up in the mountains in Banff and we became the first group in its entirety to jump into Bow Lake. Bow Lake is glacial water. Needless to say the delegation bonded as Honorary Canadians after that!
