Workaway is a dream come true. Traveling, working and meeting new people is what I live for. I have traveled across Europe, Canada, the U.S, and El Salvador and don't plan on slowing down! Remaining active is incredibly important to me, whether that means doing yoga, pilates, jiu-jitsu or skiing.
After I graduated university I chose to travel as I was curious what the world had to offer. Since I began in May 2018, I have traveled through three continents, totaling 35 countries. A majority of my travel has been volunteer work. I have volunteered at six different workaways but there are two that stand out. The first was a French Chateau that I worked at for a month. I was responsible for the landscaping of the 60-acre property, cleaning the guest's rooms and cleaning all the linens. The second volunteer site was in Slovenia. I love it so much that I returned for a second month this year. I was in charge of teaching upwards of 15 volunteers with limited English ability how to construct a house. I learned countless construction skills throughout my time there. Besides building the new volunteer house, I cooked for up to fifty people each night, cleaned the entire house, worked in the potatoe fields and maintained the hiking paths for tourists.
For two years I have been an emergency medical technician. I have responded to all sorts of medical emergencies which is a great help with childcare. In addition to my medical experience, I have worked in a government position, in the private sector at a national defense company and real estate development. Throughout my travels, I have babysat for two families for a month each. For the past eight years, I have coached kids baseball and basketball so acting as a role model to children is something I enjoy!
I always keep an open mind towards new people, places and opportunities. Thank you for reading my profile!
