  • Description

    I have come back to Scotland after two years of travelling and working in New Zealand. During that time I woofed at a variety of places and loved each experience.
    I love hillwalking and nature. I have hiked around many parts of Scotland, New Zealand and parts of California.
    In 2017 I graduated with BSc in Sports Science. I am a sports and cupping massage therapist and used to volunteer as the University of Edinburgh's netball teams massage therapist. I worked at a hospital helping those with chronic illnesses at hydrotherapy sessions.
    A passion of mine is cooking and baking. My favourite being lemon drizzle cake.
    During my travels, I have gained a keen interest in gardening, animal care and learning about self-sufficient living.

    I love exploring new countries and have the travel bug. I first used workaway travelling New Zealand and enjoyed it so much I want to continue using it around the world. I travelled around both North and South Island during my two years and have loved the experiences.
