  • Description

    My name is Maureen, but I often go by Moe. I am originally from Ohio but have been living in Eugene, Oregon on and off (traveling) for the past 7 years. Ever since my big move cross country I crave change..
    Love experiencing different places, lifestyles, cultures. I take my traveling as an educational experience and keep an open mind! I am always anxious to try new things and meet new friends!
    When traveling, It is very important for me live just as the locals do, work hard, respect the land, and contribute to the community in a positive manner. Living green and leaving the land as it was (or better if possible) is something I am very conscious of.
    I look forward to getting my hands dirty in the garden, like to help clean, Cooking for people is something I find very rewarding (love to make people happy with a good healthy meal) and am very interested in gaining more building skills! Also have a great amount of respect and love for animals and the environment!
    Some of my favorite hobbies are.. Hiking, biking, cooking, creating all types of art, camping, singing and playing ukulele and guitar, dancing, and making others smile!
    I am a very hands-on learner and am so thankful to be a part of workaway. It has created many opportunities for me and many more to come!
