Hi there and thanks for visiting my profile!
I'm looking for a range of volunteer experiences whilst I travel. I have visited all the continents of the world but there is still so much to see and learn. I have degrees in Business and Marine Biology and a real passion for Penguins, wildlife and our environment. I have worked in Outdoor Education for the past 10 years so am good with all ages of learner and am TEFL (teaching English) qualified. I have conducted a variety of local citizen science, beach clean and art projects that might be of interest to you.
I love being outdoors, so most of my workaways have involved gardening, and I have earnt a reputation as a garden goddess!
I wish for a kinder more caring world so I am vegan, practice yoga and meditation and would love to be involved with projects that have a similar ethos.
Over the years I have volunteered, worked and interned at all sorts of places, many remote and with few services so I have learnt to be flexible and turn my hand to most tasks. I am a great organiser; hard working; punctual and highly reliable. If this is what you are looking for then please get in touch.

Jo is also a goddess in the house. Tidying, prepping cooking cleaning up and bringing in washing.
We and the other Workaways here had a fabulous time with Jo staying. She is a lot of fun to have around. It is definitely much quieter since
