  • Description

    I'm a very energetic, easy-going and experienced workawayer - it was my life for 4 years and allowed me to visit my scattered family until covid hit. Now I might be able to return to the variety, friendships and learning of workaway life!

    My passions are caring for people, gardens, animals and the environment, and learning from people of all ages and cultures. My English is excellent; French was fluent; Spanish, Italian and Japanese now very basic.

    I have volunteered in 13 countries and 45 workaways: helping with gardening, milking goats, renovating buildings, at retreat centres, with a mobile cafe, caring for children, the elderly and people with chronic illnesses, teaching English, painting ... and lots of cleaning!

    After being a teacher of English language for 7 years then spending 15 years in the international aid departments of the Australian and NZ governments, I love meeting people on a more individual basis.

    I look forward to meeting you.
