Linnea Iantria is passionate about travel, and doing it the right way. 

As a Senior Instructor in the Department of Geography, Geology and Planning at Missouri State University, she is responsible for teaching courses in the Geotourism minor, enabling students to broaden their horizons in meshing tourism efforts with local populations. 

She also works closely with communities that wish to develop plans for tourism that include elements from Geotourism.   The word she uses to explain the idea of Geotourism is “holistic”, which captures the goal of incorporating the complete character of a place into the experiences of visitors to its location
