Hello My name is Lorianne (Lori) Earley. Please look at my feed back first. I am coming back to the states and would like to travel around. I have spent most of my career as a home health caregiver. The last couple of years I have been able to combine my love for travel to help others. I have been accompanying and caring for an adventurous limited quadriplegic man as we traveled around the United States. With my assistance he has been able to travel, take a cruise, hunt, fish, and enjoy many activities.
I have been volunteering through workaway for a year now. I have been helping with children, housework, yardwork, teaching, gardening, farm work, anything that you can imagine. I love to experience new things and new places. I have now stayed in many countries an experienced many different cultures every place I had stayed has been very enjoyable in a new adventure for me.
For the past four years, in addition to traveling around the United States as a caregiver, I have taken extended trips to Germany, Greece, Italy, and Switzerland. The extended out of country trips were ones that I chose to take alone. Through these experiences I have learned to be flexible and adapt to many different situations.
I have volunteered for many different organizations over the years. Locally, I have volunteered at the Denver City Library, for the Special Olympics, and at day fairs. I am most proud of my work with the Dumb Friends League (a Denver animal shelter) and the Kansas Humane Society, where I have assisted with surgeries and fostered animals. I was also able to combine my volunteer work with my travels, volunteering with a sea turtle rescue organization in Greece and helping school aged children practice English in Germany.
I grew up on a small farm in Kansas where my responsibilities included feeding the chickens and ducks, milking the cows, and helping with other farm animals. I worked in the garden and helped can the vegetables. I like fresh vegetables so I have continued to garden when possible by either planting my own garden or working in community gardens.
A few personal things about me: I like ice cream – all flavors. I love good black coffee but lately have been drinking it with flavored cream. My favorite color is burnt orange and I love to watch thunderstorms. I’m not afraid of most animals and am not bothered by the sight of blood. I can work outside but have a hard time working in the full sun. I can do yard work and gardening but prefer not to mow the lawn.
