  • Description

    Hi! I'm Gemma. I'm taking a break between jobs to travel and learn different life perspectives from other people. I'm extroverted and enthusiastic when I've settled in, and love meeting and working with other people. I'm very easy to get along with, friendly, bubbly and intelligent. I thrive in groups or when meeting lots of new people, and love everything outdoors. I love camping, hiking, horse riding, climbing, mountaineering, cycling, running, yoga - you name it! I'm quick to learn new skills and believe you can learn something from everyone! I have already had some wonderful workaway experiences and am keen to have more! I'm good at physical work and taking initiative to do what needs doing. I can work independently or with more instruction depending on the work. I also love to share music, art and spend cosy evenings in playing cards.
