  • Description

    As a former professional, it's my turn to give back to society. It will be an honor to assist you in any of the capacities listed below, and then some. I am flexible, willing to travel, respectful, and have a love and appreciation for people and cultures around the world. In starting the next chapter in life, I look forward to exploring new places through slow travel, contributing to lives, and blogging about the kindness and experiences around the world.
    As a California native, I have lived my entire life on the West Coast of the USA in Nevada, Oregon, and California. I am a seasoned international traveler. Being raised on a small farm and a fishing community, gardening and animals were part of my daily life; requiring skills such as problem-solving, creativity for many crafts, preserving food, and dependability.
    Owning multiple businesses over the years has prepared me to assist you with skills such as self-starter, communication, marketing, and having that "Go-Getter" attitude expected in the entrepreneurial world. I have owned a home where guests visited often so I'm familiar and comfortable with hospitality, have no diet restrictions, and pride myself in being a person who "never met a stranger." I am organized, neat, and flexible.
    I am a certified TEFL English instructor, ready to share the benefits of the English language in a fun, engaging manner to people of all ages.
    Over the years, I have mentored children, adults, and believe enthusiasm, gratitude, and a positive, stay-curious attitude is the best medicine for a life well lived. Amongst friends and family, I am known as "Auntie Sandi." I consider myself in better physical shape than many and bring skills learned over a lifetime for your benefit. Let's work together.
