  • Description


    We are easy going people who are looking for a companion for our two girls and someone who will assist around the house. We all love learning about different cultures and we wish to share our culture with you. Our girls enjoy sign language, singing, playing the recorder, role playing and watching movies.

    I love surfing the internet, watching movies and meeting new people. My Previous volunteer was from Germany and she spent 3 amazing months, I learnt so much about her culture as she did ours. She will return again in July 2017 and after that her friend from Germany will visit too. So I have looking forward to that. I don't know how long each will stay so I haven't selected the dates on the calendar as yet only July.

    We operate a Block factory and board rental business from home so at times I may be busy and would like someone to take charge of the household. My husband is a contractor/builds houses, so he leaves early and comes home late most days. So having someone to talk with would be great :)
    We want you to come to our home and feel like apart of our family. Home away from home. I have traveled and spent 8months in another country where I knew no one, living from a suitcase so I know how important it is to feel at home, make new friends and feel as though I belong even with the new culture I am facing. So don't worry our home is small but our hearts are big. Looking to hear from you soon
