I have always loved traveling but it wasn't until I started exploring on a more local level that I began to really appreciate the places I was visiting. I love learning about other people and cultures, I get along amazingly with animals, eating/drinking local deliciousness is a huge hobby of mine and arts and crafts are 2 of my favorite things!
My first excursion in which I used Workaway was to New Zealand from September '13 to July '14. It was incredible! I had amazing experiences with the people I met and the jobs I got to do. After that, I spent a few months wandering around Europe (Feb '15 - June '15) and did another handful of exchanges. I can honestly say that I have learned a heck of a lot, enjoyed (nearly) every minute of it and can not wait to do more.
Since those two trips where I utilized Workaway several times, I've hoped around the US and Europe visiting friends I've made at home and friends I've made on the road.
My background is that I am a city gal but I feel that with minimal instruction I can do most anything outside or with my hands. I'm a quick learner and hate to disappoint people, especially those who are kind enough to help me along my way. I am a pet photographer in the US so clearly animals are a big thing for me :) I come from a very tiny family and am an open book which I'm sure bodes well for the people I'm going to meet along the way!
People skills via customer service, waitressing and beertending. Also quite a bit of experience with photography, creative projects and animals. I follow directions well and am pretty handy with a can of paint and a paint brush :) I am anxious to learn new things and an incredibly hard worker!
