  • Description

    Hello hosts,
    I would like to introduce myself. My name is Tina and I enjoy my early retirement after having worked for 40 years as a personal assistant / secretary at three housing corporations. I have two adult children. My husband passed away for more than 10 years.
    I am a workawayer because I want to continue to use my qualities and skills for my fellow man. That's why I think Work Away is so fantastic: a service for a service.
    I am friendly, flexible, honest, helpful, good listener, curious, adventurous and positive. So thinking more in solutions than in problems. And happy not to forget!
    I'm handy. So I can help you with sanding, filling up, painting and decorating wood. Of course you can also use me for housework, such as washing, ironing, cleaning, shopping. I also have experience with gardening (flowers and vegetables), taking care of dogs, cats and birds. I love nature, animals and people. I also spend my free time walking, sculpting in stone, painting (Aboriginal style) and sewing clothes. I am fit and in good health, so come on with the odd jobs!
    And please note that allthough I'm smoker, I don't smoke in the house and also not close to people.
    I look forward to your reaction.
    With kind regards,
