  • Description

    I'm a very energetic, easy-going and experienced workawayer - it's become my 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 fluent; Spanish, Italian and Japanese quite basic.
    I have now volunteered in 12 countries and 28 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 of many nationalities on a more individual basis.
    I look forward to meeting you.
