Nadine comes from an area known as “Between the Rivers” in North Louisiana. As the granddaughter of a steamboat captain, she comes by her love of the river quite naturally. Her first work in the cruise industry began in the mid 1970’s when she was on the entertainment staff of an oceangoing vessel sailing out of New Orleans. She lived in Switzerland for five years but returned home to begin a 10 year career working on paddle wheel steamboats on the Mississippi River.
She met and married her bandleader husband, David, onboard the Delta Queen. Now residing in Vancouver, Washington, she is happily working for USA River Cruises, where she can see the Columbia River from her office window.
