  • Description

    I've done Workaways all over the world (Panama, Portugal, Spain, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, etc.) and have absolutely LOVED my experiences. The projects have included teaching English, bartending/hospitality, permaculture, basic building/maintenance, etc. I've had so many amazing opportunities to apply my skills and gain new ones.

    Now, I am back to Workaway looking for opportunities such as house-sitting and pet-sitting, as I work part-time online and I think it would be a great arrangement for all of us. I absolutely LOVE animals and even foster dogs when I am home. I'd love to give you a hand!
