Our Team by Location
Mongolia Country Director
After receiving a degree in journalism from the University of Florida, Gaia moved out of the newsroom and onto the Mongolian steppe. Prior to working in Mongolia, she managed our elephant conservation programs in Asia and still ensures that our wildlife programs are managed responsibly. Having worked in 14 of Rustic Pathways’ 18 countries, and traveled in many others on her own, Gaia has enjoyed sharing her love of travel and adventure with students since 2011. She continues her love of storytelling in documentary film, having worked on productions in India, Jordan, and Malaysia and the United States.
Mongolia Program Manager
Hailing from the mining town of Erdenet in northern Mongolia, Buyanaa began helping us provide students with a truly “rustic” experience on some of our earliest programs in Mongolia. She spends most of her year working for an international humanitarian organization, and her passion for service informs everything she does. Buyanaa also speaks English and Russian.
