  • More details about your skills

    My job requires extensive manual labor. I often haul gear for 12+ hour days. I am a quick learner and feel strongly about making sure tasks are completed.

    I also spend extensive time caring for a family member with a disability and am experienced in being attentive and listening to the needs of people who require active care. Having been a camp counselor for young kids, I am also well versed in applying those skills to making a fun and safe space for kids to be in.

  • What else ...

    I personally enjoy storytelling as a pass time and like to play games that involve using imagination. I think kids are fun to spend time with and am comfortable looking after them for extensive periods of time.

    I like to eat healthily and feel strongly about learning how to be more environmentally conscious. With regard to home care and hygiene, I consider myself attentive to cleanliness.
