Hi! My name is Alexis, and Chandler is my partner of 5 years. We are both young and fit, and looking to take a gap year—but definitely not a vacation! We’re looking to spend time learning new things and absorbing other cultures. We’re both hard workers, but laid-back, and love meeting new people. We both come from the midwest in America, where people are known for being hard-working and honest.
I have previous experience WWOOFing on an olive farm in Greece, where I spent a few months several years ago, and still keep in touch with everyone I worked with. It was the best experience of my life, and I’m looking to repeat it! So far this year, Chandler and I have done a variety of Workaways—painting murals, planting trees, caring for farm animals, working in animal rescues, weeding, landscaping, harvesting coffee.
I love working outside, animals, and kids, and would be happy to do any kind of work – I would just be happy to be there. I also LOVE cooking, and LOVE plants—I would consider myself to be a devoted plant mom. Chandler and I are also both graphic designers, so could help with these types of projects as well. I was also involved with Habitat for Humanity in college, so I have a bit of experience with building.
I am currently a graphic designer for a company that focuses on non-profit work, and have spent the last few years working on projects involving women's and children's health, HIV, and nutrition in developing countries. I do a lot of freelance design work for environmental projects, women-run businesses, and children's education and well-being. I care deeply about these things, and about our planet!
I would be thrilled to hear from you, and would love to chat!
