    Great to meet you!

    I'm enthusiastic, kind, caring and consciouscious. I love helping out. I'm very flexible, open minded and easy going. I've been an entrepreneur all my life and a mom of a 21 year old. I just more or less need direction of what you want and I'm good at following through, working on my own or as a team. I am also an environmentalist, love gardening, nature, and being outdoors. I'm very good at social media, marketing and could build you a great website! I'm also a great cook and love animals. I can teach stretching, yoga, healthy cooking, shamanism and many things wellness. I am very well organized and clean and in great shape! I started my career doing 15 years of hairdressing, some kayak guiding, and now 16 years of real estate.

    I have participated in four workaways. One in 2016, in Jamaica on an eco-farm, animal care, digging, building, gardening and more. We were 11 volunteers. As extra, I did teach some yoga classes, cook, cut hair for some people, and blessed the land before they built.

    Then in 2017, I went to Belize to help a family homestead 60 acres of Jungle. I was the only volunteer, along with the owner and her son. I did fence building, cooking, animal care, painting, and help with her natural bug spray company.

    In 2018, I went to Aruba and stayed with a couple who rent out a few rooms. I helped by building their business a website. Took all the pictures, did up the content, did a video for them, designed, and helped then with their social media and Airbnb presence. www.aruba-apartments-palmgarden.com.

    Then in 2019 I went to Carriacou, Grenada and lived with a couple and did all their exterior painting and helped her with her wellness business plan.

    I would love to hear about your project and how I can help out!
