I am a warm hearted, respectful person who works hard! I really enjoy work aways where I am welcomed into the family and can get to know some of the culture or learn more skills. I am native English and speak fluent Spanish and conversational French.
I have many years experience taking care of children as well as animals. I love horse riding and have worked as a yard hand/groom/nanny on various horse ranches and farms around Europe. I'm used to outdoor work in all weather and have a decent level of fitness.
I help my mother in law with simple DIY in her renovation like pointing, sanding floor boards, painting, varnishing, removing wall partitions etc
I've worked as a bar tender, waitress, housekeeper, outdoor activity leader and receptionist alongside my university studies. After university I got a job caring for terminally sick people, and it made me realise life is way too short not to pursue happiness... Now I'm travelling with no deadlines until I'm ready to start my own small holding. I have specialist qualifications in Dementia and Alzheimers and could help care for elderly parents in host families.
I am a paid freelance writer and have plenty of experience working to deadlines in an office environment. At heart, I'm a sporty outdoors girl who loves to ride horses, cycle, hike and camp in beautiful wild places. I have a lot of love to give and am extremely good-natured and trustworthy, and not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty!
