Ben Kaanta

Ben is a former engineer who worked for 20+ years in the biosciences in roles from project management to CEO.  Longing to work more closely with people making transformations in their lives, he is a CPCC and ICF certified coach. After spending most of his life in Colorado (with stints in Indiana and California), Ben and his wife Tanya decided to pursue another passion of theirs - expanding their horizons through adventure. Along with their teenage daughter, this led to splitting their time between Colorado and living abroad. They also have a son attending college in Colorado. Ben is married to a Korean adoptee, and participated in heritage camps with his family over the years.

Please note: Ben may not travel on every trip.
