  • Descripción

    I will turn 50 in January 2022 and my husband and I are going to take a year out and explore the world! I am passionate about wildlife and nature conservation and also love learning about different people: their cultures and how they live day-to-day. My purpose in life is to make a positive difference and the idea of volunteering during our trip would give our travels a sense of meaning.

    I am an executive coach and have run my own business since 2008. I work with business owners and senior executives to help them maximise their leadership potential and implement positive change in their organisations. I frequently organise training events and am good at building rapport with strangers to help put them at ease and feel welcome. I enjoy writing promotional materials using words and pictures to get my message across. I also have 2 children (now 22 and 20) so have plenty of experience in organisation and time management! I enjoy gardening and photography and keeping physically active.

    My husband grew up on a farm so has lots of practical experience on planting and working the land, care of animals (including helping with births!) and general maintenance of machinery. He also loves cooking and as a business owner, he is very good at building relationships with people, young and old. He is a practical problem-solver and is very interested in green energy.

    We love to experience different places and cultures. Our favourite trips (so far!) have been to Borneo, Thailand and Belize. What made these places so special was the people we met, the wildlife and the chance to experience life in the jungle or on an island. We are 50 this year and have decided to travel as volunteers rather than just tourists! We want to get under the skin of the countries we visit and believe the best way to do this is by living with the locals and offering our skills/services to help them in any way we can.
