Hailing from bird-rich Colombia, Eliana was destined to be a birder. Her ornithological endeavors have taken her from her home in South Florida (USA) to the far corners of the world, where she immerses herself in nature with a warmth and excitement for bird life. You’ll most likely never see her without a camera in hand; she is a committed and spirited photographer. Not only is she exceedingly quick at capturing images of flighty birds, she has a keen eye for composition and technique. When she’s not birding, Eliana is the executive director and lead veterinary technician for Project PetSnip, a Miami-based organization focusing on spay and neuter surgery to combat pet overpopulation. She’s also a field biologist, avid ceramicist, triathlete, gardener, vegan chef, environmentalist… you name it, she’s probably done it. You’ll quickly learn that she has an obsession with Corvids (the crows, ravens, and jays) and the color green. With her outgoing personality and contagious enthusiasm, she is fantastic company to clients, co- workers, and friends. Together with her husband, Marc, they undertook a North America birding big year in 2018, chasing birds across the continent in their restored 1978 Volkswagen Bus.
