  • Description

    Hi Hosts!
    Beautiful Latin America has been my home for the past 17 years. For 9 of those years, I led groups of people on adventure tours through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, and Peru. Also, I am a certified and experienced English (ESL) teacher. I have taught English at a university on the coast of Oaxaca, a rural high school in Guerrero Mexico, and language centers in Chiapas Mexico, Ecuador and Colombia (as well as in Vietnam, Thailand, and San Francisco.)
    I love working with people, and I work well with people of all ages and nationalities. My degree is in Cultural Anthropology, and I have worked for many years with people from different cultures, both in San Francisco and abroad. I did volunteer work with refugees and immigrants in California, as well as in a refugee camp in Thailand with people who had escaped out of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. I have traveled though 55 countries, mostly backpacking on my own.
    I have experience working in small hotels and restaurants, and managing a hostel and some vacation rental units. I really enjoy working with the guests, and helping them make the most of they stay.
    I think I'm part dolphin, because I really need to be near water; it can be a lake, a river, or an ocean.
    I've been doing yoga for many years, and got my Hatha yoga teaching certification in San Francisco California in 2000.
    I have dual citizenship, Canada and the US, but I feel Latin America is my home. I'm very easy going, and love challenges and new experiences. I am energetic, flexible, reliable, honest, and a hard worker, and look forward to having more wonderful experiences with Workaway!
