Hi, I am Emalee! First started using workaway summer 2016 mostly on farms, guesthouses and helping with childcare. I love my workaway/wwoof and similar experiences because I love the longer term stay as well as the connection to the locals.
After doing the 3000 mile hike on the CDT trail in the US, I most recently worked as a wilderness therapy guide for youth in the Olympic mountains of Washington state, USA where I go out into the woods for 2 weeks at a time with a bunch of crazy kids, I absolutely love it! I also have worked as a singer in a duo and now just enjoy hanging with other musicians and singing for fun!I I have helped at a lot of farm related workaways now and have a little bit of experience working with different animals (dogs, cats, horses, chickens, pigs, cows.) While I don't have any particular skills regarding this work, I am comfortable around animals and more than willing to learn and help with animal care as well as regular maintenance. I am fairly confident in my ability to figure out things with a little research. I am a visual artist, (mostly pen and ink but I love experimenting) so previous volunteer experience has involved art and design projects. I have a lot of experience with children all ages, various activities from childcare supervision to organizing projects and providing transportation and I love opportunities to play with kiddos!
I am traveling with my partner Daniel who works building houses in the US so he pretty much knows how to do it all! He is also an artist and is getting into woodworking. He worked for years in Alaska doing commercial fishing and loves all things outdoor adventure :) We are both very into being outdoors and exploring around. Hoping to climb some big mountains soon but really just appreciate any time spent outside.
