Hello! My name is Catherine. I'm Canadian/German, currently studying geography and environmental science at Mount Allison University. I love to travel and visit new places. Most of all, I appreciate the opportunity to develop social connections with all sorts of people, young and old. I love learning languages and being exposed to diverse cultures. I also enjoy being in nature and working with animals.

More details about your skills
I love to interact with others, especially kids. I have completed two Workaways so far, both involving babysitting, gardening, and animal care. I have experience as an interpreter with the Nature Conservancy of Canada. In 2019, I completed an internship at Open Sky Co-op, a non-for-profit farm that offers programming to adults facing social barriers due to mental health or developmental challenges. I have experience working in the garden, preparing CSA shares, as well as working with chickens, donkeys, goats, ducks, and sheep. I am involved in coaching a cross-country ski program for kids. I have also worked as a German language lab instructor. Two summers ago I worked for a theatre company and helped conduct youth drama camps. I have also volunteered at the Tantramar Wetlands Centre, leading educational activities for school groups.

What else ...
I enjoy being outdoors, whether it be working in the garden, going on a hike, or swimming in the ocean. I love to bake and am a fan of musical theatre as well. I also like being around animals.
