  • Beschreibung

    I am very reliable and responsible but also a lot of fun. I have a big heart and a great sense of humor. I enjoy being busy and contributing to a worthwhile project. I love life and good people. Traveling and meeting people is what feeds me.
    I love learning new things and new cultures. Our family has hosted 12 high school foreign exchange students over the years. I also volunteered as a local coordinator for a foreign exchange company for many years.
    I have been married for 40 years. We have 3 grown children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I LOVE spending time and playing with them. My husband does not enjoy international travel as much as I do, so I get some "me" time when I travel. Traveling alone definitely expands my horizons and helps me meet amazing people. I have made many friends all over the world.
    I have traveled a fair amount, including Paris, Amsterdam, Athens, Santorini, Greece, Innsbruck, Austria, Edinburgh, Scotland, Utila, Honduras, Costa Rica. As well as traveling around to many areas in Morocco, Italy, Germany, Spain, England, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Colombia, Peru, Cuba, the USA, Canada & Mexico.

    I have a university degree in Public Relations. I have worked in PR, marketing, advertising, sales and customer service for over 30 years in various industries including high tech, home builder and commercial seed industry. I have also worked in the retail and restaurant industries.

    I have volunteered a lot over the years in the USA cleaning creeks and beaches, cleaning graffiti, mentoring at children's art programs, serving at food banks and soup kitchens for low income and homeless families. I have volunteered at the Gilroy Garlic Festival for over 25 years in various capacities; four of those years as a committee chairperson for the Arts & Crafts Committee.
    2013 & 2014 - volunteered in Guatemala working with children, building homes and at an organic farm. 2014 on the island of Utila, Honduras, I volunteered at an iguana research station as well as assisted with endangered turtle rescue efforts on the island. 2015 - volunteer work exchange at a boutique eco lodge on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala for 2 months. 2016 - 2 month work exchange at an eco lodge, "The Earth Lodge", Antigua Guatemala. 2017 - 1 month work exchange at "La Tortilla" Cooking School in Guatemala.
    2014 I started meditation and studying the teachings of yoga.
    2014 I became a certified PADI SCUBA diver
    2011 I started learning Spanish.
    2021 - I started learning French.
