About Alex Dunn

Growing up in New York’s Hudson Valley, I was introduced to exploring beautiful places at such a young age. Spending time outside provided an outlet for my creative and innovative thinking. I found a perfect balance of the peace in nature and the excitement of adventure — my role in trip planning feels appropriate as it allows me to create opportunities for students to discover the unique beauty of the outdoors.

Since graduating from High Point University, I have worked in the finance industry as a data analyst and explored a role in PR through a national agency. While my work portfolio is diverse, I have always had a passion for leading students and exploring the outdoors. In the summer of 2021, I led New England Adventure and New England Explorer with Overland. I immediately fell in love with the community so I was back in the summer of 2022 leading Iceland Explorer. Leading trips allowed me to see the direct impact that outdoor adventures can have on students, which inspired me to become a year-round member of the Overland team.

Overland students are pioneers and leaders. As a trip planner, I love witnessing the positive impact that joyful experiences can have in an outdoor setting. The entire Overland community reminds me how valuable loads of positivity and endless smiles are!
