Hello, I'm Julia. I'm a lover of nature and animals, singing and playing music, enriching children, deep talks and plant medicine. I am known to give my entire self to each project I am a part of, and truly enjoy that aspect of volunteering.
I am currently looking for positive environments where I can share my gifts with those around me while using available resources sustainably and abundantly. I truly enjoy educating both children and adults through sharing.
I think one of my biggest assets is my natural ability to maintain strong, trusting interpersonal relationships. I have a lot of experience organizing both small and big projects and I appreciate responsibility. It's easy for me to catch on and jump into an everyday routine. I prefer to be with a project for a least a month, and often form long-term relationships with the places I volunteer.
I sing and play guitar and piano and depending on when we meet, I will have at least one instrument with me (if not only my voice). My favorite things to do are sing, laugh, be with kids and dogs, cook, have good talks, work with the earth and plants, instill self-confidence in others and be in nature.
I have a green thumb and extensive experience with starting and maintaining an organic vegetable garden. I practice herbal medicine and maintain a traveling apothecary in my backpack. I am an experienced chef and mainly focus on a well-balanced and healthy diet using available ingredients, including all types of breads made from scratch. I can cook for large amounts of people with ease. I nurture and enrich children naturally. I am a classically trained vocalist and play piano and guitar and I enjoy performing and improvising with other musicians. If there is time, I also enjoy painting symmetrical murals. I excel at gardening, cooking, singing, housekeeping, organizing, managing people, general hospitality and personal support.
I am a positive influence on any environment and bring strong, good energy. I have been volunteering on farms and taking care of other people's homes and children for 10 years in Europe, North and South America.
Cats (only if sleeping with them) but I love them!
