Hi - I am a self-motivated, energetic enthusiastic, reliable hardworking and organised professional with experience in varying fields which I am seeking to be able to offer those who may be in need of help or support in developing and sustaining projects. I enjoy a challenge and give full commitment to any task I am involved in.
I have travelled extensively - completing all continents either by way of volunteering / paid work / research or personal challenges. I really enjoyed a recent stay on a farm in South Africa & am now looking to spend time volunteering to help individuals with their own projects rather than larger corporate or charity type businesses I have been involved in the past with.
I ran two care homes for 25 years - converted a farmhouse in France to a yoga/holiday retreat & have travelled the world working & volunteering on projects such as Orangutang rehabilitation - Rhino release in SA - research in Antarctic & Arctic plus Marine research amongst others.

I am always keen to learn or try new skills & will lend a hand wherever it is required. I love being active - keeping busy & feeling I can help make a difference to those I assist.
Health and fitness are my passion and the love of the outdoors I prefer to travel on foot or cycling. Having travelled extensively throughout the world whenever the opportunity existed, I have realized my passion for people & retaining the eco balance of the world.
I have challenged myself including trekking, marathons, speed hikes/treks and the most rewarding and highlight of my experiences was climbing Kilimanjaro and leading the group to the summit,
I have worked in a variety of animal settings - loving my house sitting work both in UK & abroad. I love to be amongst people but equally love solitude & am quite happy within my own company in nature.
