  • Description

    Hi! My name is Karissa, I am from a small rural town in Rhode Island, United States. I am 23 years old with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I love helping and learning from people. Nursing may be my degree, but traveling has always been my truest passion.
    I am currently traveling. The past year I have traveled around the western United States in a van and have seen the most magnificent National Parks, experienced incredible landscapes, met the most amazing people who are now friends, and truly got in touch with nature.

    A description about myself...I am a hard worker and enjoy being independent. I have always worked multiple jobs to fund my travels. I love nature and being outside more than anything. Sitting peacefully by a campfire looking at the stars pretty much describes me in one sentence. I am easy-going and always willing to learn, actually I prefer to learn! Teach me new things! I am very interested in farming, gardening, learning more about being self-sustainable, helping/working with animals, helping people, experiencing different cultures and ways of living, etc!

    I hope to learn, teach, explore, help, and meet new friendly faces while traveling our beautiful planet. Can't wait to meet everyone that I get to connect with through my travels on WorkAway
