Hi there! I'm a 28-year-old female living in Jackson, Mississippi, and working as a mental health therapist at a local hospital. I recently moved from Los Angeles and hosted several WorkAwayers there in the past. (I still do travel between the two cities, so I may be able to host you in Los Angeles too!) I'm originally from Toronto, Canada. I love meditation, yoga (though I'm a beginner), horseback riding, and OF COURSE traveling. I work as a therapist and volunteer with many organizations helping those living in poverty and the LGBTQ+ community.
I'm looking for a cultural exchange with some light cleaning and taking care of my chihuahua as well as company volunteering with low-income kids and families. Currently, I’m also looking for volunteers to help me with social media marketing and hosting events related to yoga, meditation, therapy, and holistic healing.

Jackson, MS is an underrated city with so much to offer, including great southern food and culture. It is 2 hours away from New Orleans, Memphis, and 3-4 hours to other major cities. I love taking road trips to Florida beaches (4 hours away!) and you're welcome to join me!
I am also happy to show you around when I'm not busy at work.
I am looking for WorkAwayers for assistance with volunteering, hosting holistic healing events, and caring for my dog while I'm away.
I'm currently seeking some longer-term travelers (1 month+) but I'm open to shorter stays.
I would love for someone to accompany me to volunteer with at-risk youth who are living in poverty. For this, you must be open-minded and enthusiastic about working with children and teenagers! Many of the people we work with identify as gay, lesbian, or transgender, so you must be accepting of this.
I also need help with more simple tasks, like taking care of my dog when I'm away (he's a small chihuahua - only 3 lbs and 13 years old), some light cleaning and tidying around the house, and if you speak Spanish, I would love to do language practice.

You will share a beautiful apartment with me and have your own room. There is a pool, lounge area, and shopping areas nearby. You are welcome to eat any of the snacks in the house and cook your own food. During the week I'm usually out from 8 AM - 6 PM so I can only guarantee that I can provide 1 meal (usually dinner). I will also give you some money to go to the grocery store to buy other foods you like for breakfast and lunch.
I still do travel between Mississippi and California, so I may be able to host you in Los Angeles too!
