Dorina is a lifelong Skagit County Resident. Retiring after 30 years in city government as a police dispatcher and Court Administrator, she spent the last several years as a family care-giver and working part-time for Seattle City Light, as a tour guide for the Skagit Hydroelectric Project, a Curves Trainer and Manager and the last two years for Bellair Airporter Shuttle where she works as a Customer Service Agent in Burlington. She enjoys traveling, scrap booking and gardening.
When asked what she enjoys about being a tour host, her immediate response is “the wonderful people I get to meet from around the Pacific Northwest and from all over the world”. Touring with a professional driver and a tour guide/host is a great way to learn about the local area and find fun things to do and see. As a tour host her focus is ensuring that all tours guests have a fabulous experience and learn something new while touring.
Dorina's been lucky enough to travel all over the US and Canada as well as Great Britain and her dream trip to Australia and loves exploring new places while traveling. Her motto is, “you don't get lost, you’re just exploring, someplace new.” She loves being a Tour Guide so she can share her love of Washington and Canada with those who are new to the area or those who may not be aware of the hidden gems in the Great Pacific Northwest.
