    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello there! My name is Jessica and I'm 25 years old. I originally signed up for Workaway to have an authentic, rustic travel experience that would broaden my perspective on life. I traveled to Costa Rica in August of 2017 and I had a really positive experience. At the moment, I'm really interested in traveling to southeast Asia (especially Cambodia - I'm fascinated by its history and the Khmer language), South Africa, and South America.

  • More details about your skills

    At the moment, I work as a behavior technician for children that have Autism. I know how to deal with unruly kids and how to handle inappropriate behaviors. I have 1.5-2 years experience working with the elderly and data entry. I have also had short-term jobs including being a waitress, working at a laundry mat, and working in a dog kennel. I especially love tasks involving animal welfare! Any skills that aren't currently under my belt, I'm willing to learn.
