  • Description

    Hello there! My name is MaKenzie and I am an 18 year old from a small town in the United States.
    My goal this summer is to go someplace I've never been and meet some amazing new friends!
    I love animals, being outdoors, and fresh foods. If I were to describe myself, I'd say I am outgoing, proactive, patient with children, and pleasantly mannered (and love a good laugh).
    Home is a small family farm with my parents in a small town in Georgia, U.S.A. Over the years, we have had a variety of animals including dairy goats, a horse, chickens, and pigs. We have an herb garden that I enjoy tending. My family and I recently became interested in foraging for medicinal/edible plants and mushrooms. I started college in 2017 and am in the Nursing program. Out of school, I am a professional portrait and wedding photographer. I started my own business in 2017 and it has really expanded. I know how to cook and especially like making breakfast (my favorite meal of the day). In 2016, my family began fostering children, and since, we have had 7 kids from 2 months to 9 years, so babysitting is no trouble.
    I have many passions, but learning about and exploring our world is at the top! I am ready for a challenge and excited to experience life in a new place.
    Please ask any questions!
