Hello WorkAway Hosts!
I am an optimistic, friendly, respectful, easy-going girl from America. I can find happiness and purpose in any job, can easily adapt to new routines and I learn very quickly. I love to laugh a lot and have a very calm and patient personality- I get along with almost everyone I meet. Leading a healthy, holistic and peaceful lifestyle is very important to me. I have many interests, but my favorite are hiking, walking around exploring new places, watching sunsets, practicing yoga and meditation, reading, writing and learning the guitar. I am very neat, organized and independent-and am as happy spending time alone as I am spending time with friends. I love to travel, and have traveled all over the USA as well as France, Switzerland, Italy and Jamaica.
I currently work for a NGO community center in a rural town in upstate New York. I run a Toddler/PreSchool program for babies- 4 year olds, and also coordinate an after school program for children ages 5-12. Previous to this position, I ran a farmers market, and also served as an AmeriCorps (National Community Service program) member for two years. I love helping people and learning about different cultures which is why I love WorkAway!
I am extremely responsible, hard working, and flexible. My biggest passion is working with children and enjoying the magic they bring to the world. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Education and Special Education, and have taught Health/Nutrition Education, music and various academic subjects, including English. I've been a babysitter/nanny for 15 years now on a consistent basis, and have experience working with kids of all ages.
I have also worked in Customer Service/Food Service for 4 years, as well as in a Bed and Breakfast. I really enjoy cleaning, and find it very meditative and peaceful!
I am a very open person, please ask me anything!

I prefer to have early quiet evenings rather than go to clubs, so I will not be someone who will disturb your family by coming home late at night.
I try to eat healthy and organic when possible, but I am not picky when I am traveling :)
