  • Description

    (Español al final) I lived in a small village in Panama for the last two years as a sustainable agriculture volunteer, and I'm looking forward to experiencing the diversity the rest of Latin America has to offer. I recently completed my first two Workaway positions--one at a hostel in Medellín and one in a small town in Colombia's Eje Cafetero. I speak Spanish fluently, and I'm determined to keep improving!

    I was an environmental biology major in college, I've done some conservation work in the US, my gig in Panama was in sustainable ag, and the plan is to travel awhile before starting grad school August 2020. I like nature, good conversation, and being goofy. It takes a lot of effort to not get along with me. I can't wait to work with you!


    Vivía en una comunidad pequeña en Panamá los dos años pasados como una voluntaria de agricultura sostenible, y ahora estoy emocionada para conocer la diversidad por otros partes de Latinoamerica. Últimamente complí mis primeras dos posiciones de Workaway--uno en un hostal en Medellín y el otro en un pueblito en Colombia's Eje Cafetero. Hablo Español fluidamente, y estoy determinada a seguir mejorando!

    Estudiaba biología del medio ambiente en la universidad, trabajaba en conservación en los EEUU, mi trabajo en Panamá era de agricultura sostenible, y mi plan es viajar por un rato antes de comenzar mi maestría en agosto de 2020. Me gusta la naturaleza, conversación buena, y reirme. Es muy dificil no llevarse bien conmigo--soy muy tranquila. No puedo esperar trabajar con usted!
