Dear future host,
My name is Brenda, but I prefer to go by Skye. I'm 30 years old and currently living in Oregon. I'm originally from New York, and ever since I left 7 years ago, I've gained a lot of experience traveling and living abroad. I've spent much of my adult life has been driven by personal growth, inquiry, and good community. In 2018, I completed my Masters degree in Art Therapy, and have since been back in the states seeking a place to lay my roots and settle down.
I joined Workaway because I'm a curious soul! I love learning new skills, assisting others, and exploring alternatives ways of living. Meeting others allows me to challenge myself and continually grow and evolve. In return, I hope that I can be a helping hand, and provide you with whatever you are seeking.
I'm easy-going, open-minded, hardworking, kind, and respectful.
I'm the happiest in nature, surrounded by plants, animals, and mountains. I enjoy intuitive painting, music, fishing, playing with children, and creating genuine human connections.
Feel free to reach out with any questions. I'd be happy to meet via phone/video.
