  • Description

    I am 48 years old and I have always wanted to do extensive long term travel. Starting in June 2019 I am taking a 7 month leave from my job and travelling. I am the Director of Campus Activities at Colorado State University (CSU). I also teach in our Student Affairs in Higher Education Graduate Program. My job at CSU has allowed me to take students abroad including a 2 week trip to Spain in January.

  • More details about your skills

    I manage a small office and do a significant amount of teaching and facilitation. I could teach English if that was needed. I also volunteer at a Community Garden and have some gardening skills. I can do hard labor and sometimes that is what I like the best. When I was younger I did dry wall work and I could still do some taping and sanding and if needed. I can hang sheet rock too but I would need more practice to get efficient.

  • What else ...

    I am a hard worker and very responsible. I consider travelling a gift and I am excited at how a volunteer opportunity would deepen the meaning of the gift.
