I am an avid traveler and love seeing new places and meeting new people. I started volunteering almost 3 years ago. My first experience was a year of volunteering as the Outreach Manager for a bush school in South Africa where I worked with children and animals. Since then, I have been volunteering for Workaway guesthouses helping with marketing and guest relations and several non profit projects teaching English, painting classrooms and doing whatever else was needed. I love animals, diving, cooking, reading and trying new things. I am from the US but have been living in Mexico most recently. I am dependable and a hard worker. I managed people and dealt with customers. My friends and co-workers say I am flexible, easy to get along with and a great helper. I think volunteering around the world in different cultures and with different people is the best way to stay that way!
I have worked in sales, marketing, and publishing. I started volunteering full time 3 years ago. My first experience was a year long position living in a South African bush school that is also a wildlife orphanage where I was the Outreach Manager. The job included teaching in nearby villages as well as helping with the wild and domestic animals that live there. Since then, I have been volunteering at guest houses Africa helping with marketing and other duties and at several non profits teaching English, painting classrooms, updating computer files and whatever else they needed. I love to cook, entertain and socialize. I am familiar with many computer programs and some social media (Facebook and Instagram). I have volunteered with many charitable organizations in many capacities and as a side benefit...I can cut hair. I am open to learning new things and am not afraid of getting dirty if necessary.
I believe I will be a great addition to any team...thanks in advance for considering me!
