Hello! I'm Catherine, a 28 year old Midwesterner who currently resides in Richmond, VA. As the world begins to re-open, I'm eager to experience a new way of live through Workaway. Prior to the pandemic I was an active volunteer in my community through the United Way and our local NPR radio station. I enjoy spending time outside, cooking, painting, reading, rock climbing, cycling, yoga and having new experiences. I am an introverted extrovert who loves to be around people and also enjoys my independence. Looking forward to meeting you!

More details about your skills
While in college, I had a few jobs doing park maintenance (gardening, mowing, weeding, cleaning outdoor spaces) and harvesting vegetables from dirt gardens and hydroponic gardens. I have a green thumb and maintain a variety of houseplants in my own home. Professionally, my background is in digital marketing and I have expertise in the internet, technology, social media and advertising. In 2019, I spent 6 months teaching English in Thailand to high schoolers. In my free time I love to paint with water colors and participate in adventure sports like rock climbing, mountain biking and cycling. I love working with people directly, I love to cook, I'm highly adaptable, hard working, and reliable.
What else ...
I am looking to take a step back from corporate job and reset through this experience. I am open to all experiences and I am eager to learn about other ways of living life!
