  • Description

    I value a life filled with new experiences, learning, travel, and finding beauty everywhere. After earning a degree in biology, I've spent most of my time living and working outside. Working for the Student Conservation Association has taken me across the United States from New Hampshire to Arizona and offered the opportunity to develop a diverse skillset while doing trail building and maintenance, invasive plant management, environmental education, and youth programing, among other things. My love of conservation and sustainable living led me to agriculture, and for seven years I’ve had the wonderful experience of working on small farms, vineyards, and orchards in Vermont, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York. These experiences taught me so much about American food systems and have given me hands-on experience in fruit and vegetable farming, raising livestock, tool and equipment usage, logistical operations, marketing, management, and customer relations. Having so many different jobs in so many different locations has allowed me to meet countless amazing people who have shared their interests and skills with me such as winemaking, birding, and preserving food. As much as I love simply seeing the world and photographing beautiful places, for me, so much of a work or travel experience is appreciating all of the little things we can learn from each other along the way. I hope to continue learning and contributing through Workaway.
