  • Description

    Hello! My name is Kate Nootenboom, I am 25 years old, and I currently live in the U.S in the Sandhills region of Nebraska. I have used Workaway for the past 6+ years in the U.S, U.K, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. I love using Workaway when traveling because it allows deeper connections to the land and people of wherever I am passing through. I am hard-working, optimistic, cooperative, adventurous, and always enthusiastic about the task at hand, whatever it may be. I understand that opening your home or business to wandering strangers is an act of unusual kindness and trust, and I approach every job with the aim to repay this generosity with hard, honest work and genuine human connection.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me if you think I would be a good addition to your farm/home! I look forward to hearing from you.
