I am an open-minded idealist, helper, traveler, nature lover, hiker, yogic practitioner, creative, gardener, house sitter, animal lover, and intensely curious soul. Most people think I'm 10+ years younger than my age because of my activity level, personality, and ability to learn, grow, and connect with people of various ages and backgrounds. I've also been told I'm easy to live with because I'm tidy, responsible, patient, kind, quiet, hold space for others, and have a fun personality. I do like to help people smile! :-)
I'm currently the landscape team lead at a combined intentional living community and yoga retreat center in the United States. Starting as a volunteer over 1.5 years ago. I've worn multiple hats here which include guest interaction, internal community support, yoga retreat teacher support, house sitting, repair/maintenance, and shared chores. The only reason I'm leaving this beautiful community of people is because of my need to travel again!
My background is a combination of professional and volunteer experience. Typically of significant responsibility that included many personalities and different cultural backgrounds. I left my professional life about 6+ years ago to travel and volunteer. My lifetime volunteer experience varies greatly. Ranging from farmhand, to hosting at an eco resort, time with street children, house sitting, pet sitting, assisting a therapeutic horse riding facility, producing two TEDx events, rails-to-trails, and more. My service has included living in India for over a year, also five months in Puerto Rico, the rest spread across various places in the U.S. and abroad. I prefer to be active, outside, trying new things, learning and growing. I also enjoy house sitting and/or taking care of pets. I'm detailed, handy, eager to trade skills, and open minded. I like to think outside the box and problem solve. My goal is always, always, always to help people grow and do well for themselves.

Was noch ...
I enjoy yoga, meditation, philosophical discussion, psychology, hiking, holding space for others, connecting with the earth, and healthy living. I like to remain fit and active. Hiking, yoga, and gardening are my main forms of exercise. I do not smoke or do drugs. And I am not a partier. However, gatherings with hosts, volunteers, or community members is always lovely.
I find enjoyment from full cultural immersion, exploration, the arts, learning, meeting new people and finding common ground. Especially with those that have the capacity to share, laugh deeply, and find the good in others. Living a life that combines diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for everyone is important to me.
